About five weeks ago I wrote a little about these two then newborn twins and their blue eyes made quite an impression.

There's been some interest as to whether or not their eyes were still blue so I thought I'd give an update. At first there was a bit of coyness,

but with a little coaxing we were allowed to see. Sure enough he's still got blue eyes, with a little green now and a little darker, but still blue.

and she's still got blue eyes too, but it was cloudy today so the full color doesn't show well, but they're also still blue.

And what about the ears? We've got lots of long, long ears and these are some of the most impressive.

In the past few days the wild orchids have really been putting on quite a show.

It's really great to see that there are many, many more than we expected. They are called 'salep' in Turkey and the flour made from their dried tubers is used in beverages and desserts.

They have been very over harvested so their numbers have decreased dramatically and we are going to protect the ones in our fields and hopefully help them increase in number.

We still haven't figured out the species but hope to one day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
