  • “My timing is perfect.” Mother Nature

    They're here!

    The day dawned with these orchids in full white flower. Orchids last for weeks, sometimes months, especially the wild ones; in the Tomoo (Market Fair) the flowers are sold in bunches without being placed in water. These particular musky scented orchids opening this day, Saturday, September 15, 2012, bloom for just one day. Perfect timing for the Royal Visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
