The Cattleya Orchids are flowering again in my garden. My neighbor gave me these, she calls them “The Boner”, not sure I want to know why.

Below are the buds of a Ground Orchid (Spathoglottis ‘Cabernet’)

I am beginning to associate fall with Orchids, which seems weird.

Here is a little fruit in honor of fall, from the Spicewood (Calyptranthes pallens).

A little more fruit, this is for me – Papayas.

I was excited to find caterpillars of the Cloudless Sulphur butterfly on this Senna ligustrina, planted to attract Sulphur butterflies.

My funky iron leaves, reinstalled after taking them down prior to Hurricane Dorian’s near miss.
