Whenever I have to say Goodbye to a friend or four-legged family member I go out and buy a plant in their memory, either for the inside or the outside. I have special orchids, rose bushes and blooming trees in memory of loved ones.
We had a lame and boring winter here in Ohio -hardly any snow and the weather was way too warm. It was a surprise, when we woke up to a winter wonderland last weekend.
Two of my special orchids are in full bloom since a couple of week. Normally they start blooming in May and June, but this year everything seems to be a little bit different. The snow outside and the exotic, blooming plants inside -I thought the contrast was worth a few pictures.
