Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
Poem by William Blake
Very pleased to have another flowering by my tiger orchids. They’ve been slowly blooming for a week now. Tiger orchids are the largest orchid species in the world. They need a lot of fertilising which I don’t do much of.
As you can tell from the photo, they’re not shy of full sun. I’m not an attentive gardener so it’s really thanks to the alternate heat and rain that chased away the haze this year. Regular pruning of ferns that like to creep up the base and branches that die.
