Mainly about moisture and crucifix orchids

Whilst we did not have rain overnight we did have something between a heavy dew and a mizzle.

We woke to a whiteout in the valley.

The morning walk revealed how much the blossoms revelled in the the moisture and collected droplets.

Great to have even small amounts of refreshment for the trees and blossoms given our current dry.

A rusty gate hinge on a weathered post - part of a new installation of posts on our block - more on that when we have added more rust to the posts - Fiona says we need a rust playday.

  1. Love your crucifix orchids. I have the pinky mauve one, keep trying get the red one and would love a white one. One day.

  2. you live in such a beautiful part of the world there is nothing like the beautiful peace and quiet of waking to fog in the valley

  3. Fiona is right! I need a rust play day too! Your crucifix orchid collection is wonderful, Barry. So many colours I have yet to collect!
