Fragrant Tillandsia

My fragrant tillandsia is in bloom.  I bought this about 3 years ago when it was in bloom and I thought it would never bloom again and it hasn't until today! 

Tillandsia
The bloom is less than a half an inch and has a strong sweet fragrance.

Buddha butterfly and Bunny

I like this view of the Buddha, butterfly and bunny in our garden.  I made the butterfly out of glass.  The bunny peeking through the fern is made out of stone.

71st Santa Barbara International Orchid Show

Here are some pictures that I took on Sunday at the 71st Santa Barbara International Orchid Show.  We timed it just right and arrived a few minutes after the show opened and before it was crowded.
