Drippy Fog on Passion Flower

This morning we have some drippy fog, we will take any kind of moisture in Southern California!  The droplets on the red passion flower look really cool.

The Hooded Orioles are back this year and I like watching them feed from the nectar feeders. They are very skittish and will flee with the slightest movement inside the house.  I took these pictures using a telephoto lens while standing in the computer room more than 40 feet from the feeder.

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.

Yellow Aloe

My Yellow Aloe is in bloom.  I like the white spots and red edges of the leaves.
