The play of light on plants. On trees, on leaves, on flowers.
I love taking photos of sunlight on flowers.
Poor Man’s Orchid.
The scientific name ‘Bauhinia’ comes from two Swiss-French botanist brothers, Johann and Gaspard Bauhin. Which I didn’t know before.
Trees in flower may already show numerous pods. Elongated dehiscent pods. Dehiscent: opening spontaneously to release seeds or pollen.
The Poor Man’s Orchid tree in my garden fell sideways in one of the hurricanes. Gilbert, I think. But decades later, askew, it still flourishes.
