not exactly where I want to be this time of year ~ I'd rather be outside ~ but we've had day after day of incessant wind. It wears on a person after a while. Today it finally got to me, I feel totally wrung out from the howling so I've stayed inside and tried to "will" it away. That's totally not working so now I'm pretending I can't hear it. Really not working either. The only other logical option is to get "lost" behind the camera lens ~ that's where the "greenhouse" comes in. So many pretty blooms there right now, we may as well make the most of a bad day:
Above: mini cattleya 'Alvin Beggman Poem' with yellow spotted phalaenopsis.
Below: White Phalaenopsis with Streptocarpus 'Blue Ice:'
'Blue Ice' again with 'Black Panther:'
and finally the latest addition, cattleya BLC Greenwich 'Elmhurst:'
Believe it or not, I "think" I'm done adding orchids to the collection. I know it's early to be making a serious declaration like that, but I feel forced into it because I'm running out of space. Unless of course, something extravagantly drop-dead gorgeous comes along to change my mind!
