gold trees and ground orchids

donna has kindly put up three more pictures. two of gold trees [tabebuia chrysotricha] and one of the nun's cap ground orchid [phaius species]. the ground orchid picture also has, in the lower right corner, a pansy-like orchid, which is in a pot behind the nun's caps. the nun's cap's are planted in the ground in a small bed in the midst of the front patio.

gold trees are popular specimen trees hereabouts, although they bloom for a relatively short time. their main attraction, i think, is the gnarly nature of their form. like harry lauder's walking sticks, they seem incapable of growing straight in any direction for very long. there are tabebuias with flowers of other colors also, although they are not as popular as the gold tree for some reason. the county extension office in sarasota has an absolutely fantastic one with lavender blooms.
