The wait is over

And it was worth it.

When We Wait

This is the only orchid I own.  I bought it at Home Depot about a year ago for $9.  Mostly because of its miniature size and striking magenta color.

One by one, the petals fell until there was nothing but tentacles and waxy leaves.  I didn’t know what to do.  I kept it moist, left it on my windowsill, and waited.

And then a crazy thing happened. Tiny green buds began to appear.  Now, almost a year later it’s almost ready to burst.

So is my heart.

Pastel Pinecones

Nature is always an inspiration for color, but I didn’t know the baby pine cones had some pastel pinks bursting through their tips.

It never gets old.

Priceless

Worth the wait

Good Morning, Zoe

All butterflies and unicorns over here this morning.

I did not wake her. Wouldn’t want to mess with that passive aggressive smile. 😬

Almost There

I’ve been watching and waiting for these blossoms since I planted its bulbs months ago. Wish I remembered what it is.

I suspect it will not disappoint.
