For The Love of Orchids

I went looking for an orchid for a Mothers' Day gift for my grandson's Mama and I found an orchid for myself that I could not resist.

Need I say, I love orchids? I must admit to several unsuccessful attempts at growing them, and I rejoice when they bloom a second time. Yet, there is something about their grace and beauty that I must have in my life.

I decided to gift myself for Mothers' Day.

This is the orchid that caught my eye...

A closer view

  2. Hi Christine,
