Orchid in Bloom

IMG_3377 IMG_3373Orchidaeae is a flowering plant that is very colorful and often fragrant; a perennial herb that lacks a permanent woody structure.

It has been unseasonably warm here in the mid-Atlantic with temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s, and while I am secretly hoping that winter is over, one can never be sure when a cold front will move back throughout the area. With spring just a few weeks away, I love meandering around Heath viewing seasonal blooms, but this orchid took me completely by surprise. I bought the plant a year ago for a few dollars at a market, brought it home, cared for it then nothing…. until now. Look at these gorgeous flowers!


Easter 2015

The crocus that grows prolifically at Heath alerts us to beautifully warm days ahead and to spring!!!

Wishing everyone a wondrous holiday that is filled with family and friends.

And, to my fab father who is celebrating an exuberant 87 years today… Happy Birthday Dad!!!
