Winter Colour

Orchids .... so close.
4.30pm in the garden,
winter flowers, winter colour.
Waiting with bated breath for the orchids
... they are so close, and it's been so long.
I've almost forgotten what colour they are.
They were a no show last year,
and the year before that.
But this, year, for reasons only known to them
they will honour us with flowers,
and for that, I salute them.
Botanical Gardens, Sydney.
Giant, plastic lilly, opens and closes all day!
Little P enchanted. Making the most of the last wintery days.
Spring time soon.
