Color for a winter's day
It’s been misty and gray all day today; one of our famous winter inversions. So something colorful is definitely in order. Here's a closer look at some of the orchids I featured in yesterday's post.
Orchids are fascinating flowers; some varieties look more like creatures than flowers, or like aliens. The Treasure Valley Orchid Society has a show and sale every spring at one of the motels near the airport. These are avid orchidists, many of whom have greenhouses (since the desert climate here is not conducive to growing orchids). We’ve attended a couple of times and it was fun browsing through the exhibits. So many shapes and colors.
Sweet memories to lighten a gray day…
