Coffee Flowers

These wonderful, white flowers are from the coffee tree that is in the Rainforest Greenhouse. They smell as good as they look. The buds that you see on the branch are going to open up into flowers. Once the flowering is done the beans will form. I'm not sure how long the process takes. I'll report on the progress as it happens.

Here is Tyler. He is standing in front of one of the cycads in the Rainforest Greenhouse and is one of the Garden's most versatile volunteers. Today he was in as a docent for a group of preschool children and their parents from the Career Center. The older kids from the Career Center were in this morning digging holes for our transplants. It almost was a little too cold to work but we got a lot done.
