Orchid blooms after the rain

It has been raining a lot in the last month and a half. Not so great for going to the beach, but the orchids growing on the plumeria trees in my yard have really liked it as they have bloomed in abundance. The silvery moss you see in the photos is known colloquially as hinahina or Pele’s hair, but is actually Spanish Moss. I applied Picasa’s HDR effect to one photo and it seemed to make the photo pop. dt
