Yadon's piperia ~ 08/27/10 ~ Skyline Forest Drive

Yadon's rein orchid
Piperia yadonii
CNPS 8th Edition Inventory
Orchidaceae

Okay, okay, I've already said I've had enough of these orchid pics. It's our "thing" this summer to look for orchids, whereas last year we were really into grunion greeting. Just wanted to log and post pictorial proof of the end of the Yadon's blooms at the same time and location of the elegant piperia shown on this same date.

Hi katie -- I'm excited to have found your blog. I grew up in Cambria, went to school in SC, explored Big Sur, and am now in SF....point being, these plants are like familiar friends to me, and it's nice to see them celebrated and well-written about. I'll make sure to check back regularly, and if you head up to SF, we should head out to the Botanical Garden or one of the many "nature in the city" areas and share ID-ing thoughts. Take care, katie
