As summer winds down, floral delights abound in our back garden. A quick tour starts with a magnificent Masdevallia, which has been in constant bloom since April. This speckled purple species seems to have the resilience of a hybrid, at least in our mild coastal climate. Next is a brilliant yellow, purple, and white Cyrtochilum, an unusual Oncidium relative. Dozens of its blooms emerge from a long, vine-like flower spike which wraps around nearby plants. Finally, a cheery Epidendrum hybrid sports festive pink highlights.
These photos are just scratching the surface of what’s in bloom. Check back soon for more from our garden.
