Today's Flowers!

Our rare orchids are finally in full bloom! The buds came out on May 17 and every one to three days, one of the buds would open to reveal the beauty underneath. Until finally, this week, on a rainy June month, they are all out! Count all the flowers . . .

One.
It takes a single step to start a major change.


Two.
It takes two hearts to create a bond.


Three.
It takes three syrupy words to seal that bond.


Four.
It took four weeks for this bud to open.
It took four years for this plant to bloom.
It may take more than four decades for flowers and people to change,
to bond, bear fruit, or flower, or grow, or create major impact
on himself or in his community. But one thing is sure,
it starts with that one single sprout. . . . .

Beautiful orchid and such lovely colors. Four years is a long time to wait for the blooms, but they are so pretty.

Such a pretty orchid. I love the colour. I have a few collections but I dont have this kind.

Eden, I think they sell a lot of Vandas. That is, if that is the name of this orchid. I'm bad with names.

Kim, I want to say it is my favorite too but the other plants will stage a protest! ;-)

I'm so OK, Grace! And I moderate comments to protect against spam so it takes a while to show up.

Eileen, it actually took more than four years for this orchid to bloom. We received it as a gift and nurtured it with love and care, whether they will bloom or not!

Thanks for visiting PoeticShutterBug, Carletta and Voila!
