Singing in the Springtime

To me, these orchid blossoms seem to be shouting (at least singing) that it is springtime once again. When we first moved out here to California over five years ago, we bought a Cymbidium Orchid plant from a street vendor in the farmer's market held on a street each week here in Vallejo, California. Every spring, it blossoms so beautifully and the flowers remain on the plant for many weeks. I'd love to have a studio to take shots of these. Lacking that, I set the pot on our back porch's fence railing. The land drops off rapidly and so it is easy to take shots of things on the railing without background interference. (IMG_7631 LR4p)
