Not really sure what kind of tree this is, but I sort of like this picture.
According to my friend Misti, this is a rare cigar orchid. I have been looking at the odd plant outside my office window for over 2 years now, and noticed for the first time that it was starting to bloom. I'll have to get out a ladder so I can get better pictures when it's in full bloom. Thanks for the ID, Misti! Come down and see it!!
