St. John Springtime: Vanda Orchid

We’re slowly seeing the signs of spring here on St. John. Albeit not as dramatic as springtime in America, we do, contrary to what many believe, have definite seasons. Today, for example marks the day that America goes back on Daylight Time, making Eastern Standard Time (EST) equal to our Atlantic Standard Time (AST). The seawater has become warm enough not to be so shocking (for  baby like me anyway, but not warm enough for a baby like my friend Mario). More scientifically demonstrating the coming of a new season is the appearance of flowers on my mango tree and the aloes in bloom a buzz with bees and hummingbirds in the morning.

St. John Spring
I’m seeing the signs of the beginning of springtime on St. John. The leaves have dropped off the big Mampoo tree and new light green buds have popped up on every branch. In the morning there is a quite discernible buzzing from all the bees attracted to the pollen rich buds. The aloes are in full flower with their share of bees, but I haven’t noticed many hummingbirds this year. The mango tree has baby mangoes, the papaya tree has baby papayas, the banana plant has baby bananas and a beautiful white orchid opened up deep in the bush.
