Orchids, rainbows and winter morning light

A few of my recent iPhoneography blogs of late have been a mixed bag - posts without a theme.  The theme of this one is not theme - just fragments from the week including; orchids, a double rainbow and the morning light as we head towards the shortest day of the year.

A few more photos of orchids on the block.

Winter morning light.

  1. We are stealing your sunshine as the earth tips toward solstice ... soon ‘twill be headed back your way

  2. Oh another crucifix orchid colour. My white one is settling in well.

  3. LA, P and MC - sorry for my delayed response to your generous visit and comments. LA - isn't it grand to know that we have a balance - I just love the idea that soon you will be tipping light back our way. P - courtesy of Fiona's dad there are many colours of crucifix orchids on our block. Glad the white is settling in. If you want others just say. MC - in such dark days we need to remember there is also magic even when one's heart aches. Peace. B
