Fuschia Blooms

Today’s Foto Fix features brilliantly colored blooms on a tree at the L.A. County Arboretum. I neglected to check the tag for tree variety, so please chime in if you know! It appears slightly similar to an orchard, but is there such a thing as an orchid tree? ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)Fuschia Blooms

    The following is in response to my inquiry, from the Arboretum: “That is most probably Buahinia purpurea, commonly called the ‘orchid tree’ although it is not related to orchids (it is related to peas however).” ~SueBee

    Is it an azalea?

      It was a full size tree, and I’ve never seen azalea so large, but might be in same family!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
