Music in the Jungle

One of my favorite things about singing with Seraphic Fire is spending time in Miami. As an Arizona girl I generally prefer dry climates and wide-open landscapes, but I’m also fascinated by tropical places. The sheer abundance of green, growing, creeping things amazes me. Last week I took photos of some of South Florida’s natural phenomena, including:

huge banyan trees

that form a canopy over the streets,

orchids growing outdoors on trees,

yards full of the exotic plants we keep in pots as house plants in the rest of the country (though my schefflera did flourish outside in Rhode Island one summer!),

plants growing into and onto each other,tropical plants and tree

and palm trees swaying overhead.

Not a bad place to sing, eh?
