Bauhinia blakeana

Aka 'Hong Kong Orchid' is a tree, not an orchid, but
pretty as one. This one is in a ceramic pot, ~5 gal.

First bloom of 2019

Bauhinia blakeana is another learning experience for me. "Hong Kong Orchid Tree" is easy to remember. No matter the name it makes a great, colorful banner Cal; and fits right in for a perfect week-end. Thanks for your good work! Thumbs up

Beautiful banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
