As I mentioned earlier this week, my Mom and I visited the Orchid Show in Grand Rapids last weekend.
I love orchids! Every now and then, I pick one up somewhere (usually one of these) because I cannot resist their charms -- and especially in the dead of winter. (I even got one to re-bloom once. Not by skill; just by chance.) I have no desire to become an orchid-grower. (Too fussy.) I just like to look -- and the Orchid Show is perfect for that. Especially in January.
So how about I just show you some pretty pictures of incredible orchids? (Because it's frigid and snowy and cold and dark.)
Makes you feel like summer, doesn't it? (Well. Sort of?)
