Garden Of Eden

 I found this in my drafts since November and am taking the lazy way out.

From November through March, our Orchid Trees Bloom like these. Amazing Purples and Pinks. Last week, driving down a neighborhood street I stopped to share  this amazing tree with you.






I advise you NOT to lean on this tree, see those very thick and sharp thornes? like roses, these orchids have thorns.


9 The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:9 (New International Version)

Maybe there was one of these in that first Garden..................

You've got all kinds of "don't touch umms" be careful that Datura Fastuosa might be creeping up on you. LOL

Those are beautiful! Interesting how this beautiful tree and beautiful rose bushes have thorns and can be painful. I think there is a life lesson to be learned from them!

Gorgeous blooms but those are some wicked looking thorns. I wish some of our spring flowering trees had blooms that would last that long.

Oh my goodness, what thorns.
Fascinating to think about the beauty of the flowers and the sharpness of the thorns and your anology.
Good stuff as usual Sandra.
