Almost Spring

Its almost spring in the southern hemisphere and flowers are just popping up everywhere.

I took these picture in my yard.

Orchids are one of my favorite flowers and they just grow right on the side of a tree.
They grow so well because Paraguay is like a regular hot-house.

This particular variety of orchid is called "ojo de suegra", mother-in-law's eyes.

  1. I love orchids too, but they would never survive this weather here in the Chaco.
    Great pic´s and I¨m totally jealous you have these growing in your yard!
