Today the forest is filled with the sound of many different birds happily announcing the arrival of summer. The Hawaiian rainforest which we call home, is bursting with colorful life. Green hapu'u ferns and brightly colored orchids are everywhere we look.
These purple beauties are called Miltonia orchids. This orchid plant is over 10 years old. You can see how the new pseudobulbs grow right over the old ones. These flower blooms will last for several weeks.
