Beautiful Sunday: new orchids in my garden

in Orchid Lovers2 months ago

Last week was rather full of activities in my garden and we had very exciting rain storms. Luckily the strong wind did not last too long. Several mangoes were strewn on the ground. My gardener had a good time collecting about a hundred mangoes for selling to the local vendor at the market. I did taste some of these mangoes; they were very sweet and naturally fragrant as we grow these trees organically. Nowadays I no longer buy fruits from supermarkets as they don’t taste as nice as organic fruits. As I was walking around the garden, I was quite surprised to spot yellow orchids for the first time on the trees. These were given to me as new year’s presents two years ago. I never knew they had yellow orchids, but they had no fragrance.

At first I spotted only one yellow orchid plant, a second round of inspection I saw another one at a lower trunk of an old tree. These came as a surprise as these blossoms appear during hot summer season. I assume that most orchids like to blossom in cooler months of January. This year I could not spot my favourite red/deep purple orchids. My gardener move this one from its previous tree trunks to somewhere else. I hope she would survive the shock. She is the rarest orchid’s colours I had ever seen before, I think she’s unique as I could not find the same orchid at any flowers markets! What a shame! I will have to find out where she has gone too.

สัปดาห์ที่ผ่านมาเรามีกิจกรรมในสวนมากมาย ท่ามกลางอากาศร้อนในตอนกลางวัน และต้องดูแลต้นไม้ เพราะเราเจอพายุฝนตกหนักสองวัน เราชอบฟังเสียงฟ้าร้องมาก โชคดีที่ลมแรงพัดมาไม่นานนัก มะม่วงลูกใหญ่ร่วงลงมาที่พื้นดินหลายลูก แต่ยังมีเหลือติดต้นมาก ปีก่อนมะม่วงอกร่องร่วงลงมาร้อยกว่าลูก ปีนี้เจ้ากระรอกสามตัวมากัดกินมะม่วงหลายลูกจนตกลงพื้นดิน พวกมันฉลาดมาก เลือกกินแต่ลูกที่กำลังสุกพอดี เราเลยอดกินมะม่วงอร่อยๆอีกแล้ว ปีนี้เราเดินเจอกล้วยไม้สีเหลืองในสวนสองต้นออกดอกสวยงามอยู่ที่ต้นประดู่ เพื่อนเก่าให้กล้วยไม้พวกนี้เราเป็นของขวัญปีใหม่เมื่อสองปีที่แล้ว เราก็พึ่งเห็นว่ามีดอกสีเหลือง ส่วนใหญ่เราจะเห็นแต่สีม่วง ดีใจมากที่มีกล้วยไม้ออกดอกใหม่

เราเคยมีกล้วยไม้ที่มีดอกออกสีแดงเลือดหมู ดอกมีความสวยงามมาก แต่เราหาต้นนี้ไม่เจอแล้ว คนสวนจับย้ายไปแปะที่ต้นไม้ต้นอื่น เราคิดว่ามันคงช็อคไปแล้ว ไม่ยอมออกดอกให้เห็นเลย เราต้องไปตามหาว่าอยู่ที่ไหน เราพยายามหาซื้อมาเพิ่มแต่ไม่เคยเจอตามตลาดนัดต้นไม้เลย ส่วนกล้วยไม้สีเหลืองนี่ดอกแข็งแรงมาก แต่ไม่มีกลิ่นหอมเหมือนพวกสีม่วงดอกเล็ก ปีนี้อากาศแปรปรวนทำให้กล้วยไม้ออกดอกน้อยมาก ในอดีตเราเคยเห็นดอกกล้วยไม้สีม่วงออกดอกบ่อยมาก ปีนี้ดูเหมือนจะหายไปครึ่งหนึ่ง เราคงต้องหาเวลาและปุ๋ยไปใส่ต้นกล้วยไม้บ้างแล้ว เราขอเอารูปกล้วยไม้ปีก่อนมาให้ดู เป็นการเปรียบเทียบว่า พวกสีม่วงนี่มีดอกดกมาก และมีกลิ่นหอมอ่อนๆด้วย

These were some of my purple orchids last year. They looked quite wild and soft to me and they hardly needed any special attention.

Now you could see why I like these purple orchids more than those with strong and thick petals. These would dance in the wind and they were always smiling to me.

Wishing you a very nice day.

Stay strong and cheerful.

Love seeing your orchids and am amazed you can have them out in the gardens. Fascinating seeing the different things you can grow from what I can grow. :))

Yup! These are ordinary orchids, quite cheap! So they stay on the trees! lol
Couldn’t afford expensive orchids and I have no time to look after them! I wish I had more time for acquiring proper gardening knowledge from other farms!

Thank you very much for your kind support.

Oh my goodness .. How beautiful are these!! What specimens you have. 😍

Those orange Orchids are the shade of ripe mangos.. lol. Too bad there fragrance was absent. I am glad you and your plants survived the storms 😁

Thank you so much for your kind appreciation. You must be hungry for some sweet fruits! Haha. I rush I could eat the yellow orchids as dessert. That would be interesting.

The storm did frighten my gardener as she had a bad experience of being struck by lightning as a young girl. I hope to see other orchids blossoms later on.

Have a nice day!

WHAT?! Struck by lightning?? That's something you don't hear every day. My gosh.. she's lucky.

I AM hungry for some mango.. sometimes I order this chicken quesadilla from a local restaurant, and they put mangos in it. Love it! I like the sweet mango and grilled chicken together with lots of cheese...... yummy!

This is quite a big work you undertook. I have seen different kinds of orchids here in Africa with some kind of foul smell and keeps you off but from a distance, they look exotic and attractive. I wish I could put up a piece as detailed as this too.

Thank you very much for your kind comment. Hope you’ll show us some orchids from South Africa.

โอ้ย ใจละลายค่ะ กล้วยไม้สีชมพูอมม่วงสวยมากๆเลยค่ะ

Thank you. Very cheap orchids!

ชอบดูสวนบ้านนี้จังค่ะ มีอะไรดีๆเยอะเลย

Thank you. We also have green snakes, cobra and scorpions!!! 🙀😂😂

Mangos and orchids. Ahh such heavenly delights.

Seasonal fruits and orchids! A lot of work in the garden! See you next year!

Beautiful orchids. What a lovely sight to see in the garden. I had never seen a yellow orchid before.

Yeah. I was quite surprised too. I didn’t know my friend gave me yellow orchids! LoL
But I am more used to white, purple and red orchids! We still have some orchids which never had any flowers yet! Wait and see.
