Weekend Flowers

I loved this beautiful Bauhinia - tree orchid which I snapped at the zoo in Bali.

The Balinese love flowers and use them as daily offerings to their household gods. They often buy them from the market or gather them from their gardens.

We grow these in hothouses or as treasured indoor plants. In Bali they grow everywhere.
