The gloomy weather/heavy downpours almost every afternoon don't seem normal for this time of the year but the good thing is that it brings surprises here and there where flowers are concerned. I seldom see pigeon orchids bloom on trees and now I will keep my eyes open for them. Thanks!

thanks for the correction!
