The Orchid is Blooming again . . .


. . . watch that bud . . .


. . . watch it open . . .


. . . watch it burst forth with such dazzling color!


i watch it constantly
and i am bewitched!

but who keeps watch and heals her during the day?


. . . and who shrouds her at night fall?
with cold winds that fuses the dark with her fragrance . . .


. . . and more importantly, who watches her when i'm out?

My pink-violet orchid in Heaven for Maia's MacroFlowerSaturday and for Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Sandy's TodaysFlowers. . . and if you are still in that thankful phase, head on over to Rachel and play her ABC of Thanks! So what am I thankful for this time? Well yesterday was my sister Luchie's birthday and since she is the garden keeper (she planted that orchid years ago!) I am thankful to her for all these gorgeous plants in Heaven, for her friendship, for the laughter and all that noisy bickerings, and for the yummy food she served! Happy Birthday to Ignacio too! SO here's my great whoopy ABC THANKS for all these gorgeous cyberfinds!!! . . . There are more but I'm limited! ;-) Oh, you all made my cyber moments special and inspiring!

I'm bewitched too, what a beauty, what a color! I'm very jealous when I see your orchids how happy they are without any pampering. Not even your sweet doggy hurts them.
Wonderful photos Lui.
