The red epidendrums near the bottom of the front steps have been blooming profusely.


On my way out, I noticed this tiny bud (which I think will burst into many blossoms). I could barely make out detail with my old eyes and glasses, but I figured that the camera could. And it did. I adjusted the aperture to get the background the way I wanted it, which is to say with just a hint that those green objects are ferns.


I went back outside and measured the bud -- it's 1/16" wide.
