Asian delicacies

DAY 15 (20 APR) – Orchid tree (Chiclana, Spain)

These delicate orchid trees (bauhinia variegata) caught my eye, arranged around a tiny square here in Cadiz province.

They’re native to South and South East Asia, and Spain is the only European country to plant them. In the Neotropics, they are used to attract hummingbirds. Lovely thought.
