Orchid Show

We are finally seeing an end to winter here. The temps are in the 40's (finally!), but we are not completely out of the woods yet. A few weeks ago when spring didn't seem quite so imminent the Minnesota Arboretum held an orchid show.

Each one is so delicate, exotic and colorful.

The one above was one of my favorites. It was in a glass case as part of a collection of smaller orchids.

I have tried to grow them, but have never had much luck. The cat knocking them over probably didn't help.

I am in such a mood for flowers that I completed a set of eyeglass cases covered in blooms. These go to California and will also be for sale on our website soon. Here's to Spring!

Orchids are just the most amazing flowers, and will always remind me of our honeymoon in Malaysia many many years ago.
