I was very taken with this Cattleya at the Orchid Show. Please click to enlarge.
We went to the Orchid Show yesterday. My husband loves flowers though managed to contain himself and brought only one home.
I learned to appreciate flowers and other growing things from my husband. We’ve been to the orchid show a few times and I discovered by looking closely there are some interesting characters.
Orchids look like they have faces. Some are open-mouthed, and some have buck teeth. One yesterday looked like a space alien. I regret my photo is lousy or I’d post it as proof.
I’m grateful for the flowers and the natural world. I’m grateful that for their beauty and personalities, and I’m grateful that some of my husband’s love and appreciation for all things green and leafy had rubbed off on me.
