Brassidium Shooting Star Black Gold
I was trying to be strong at the local orchid show. But then I rounded the corner, saw this crazy gal, and got weak in the knees... Seriously? $15 dollars? Come to Mama!
If you're a fan of the PBS Nature series, you've probably seen this rude trick: While animal Mom is out foraging for food, some techno geek sneaks into her underground den and installs a live camera.
Sheesh! While I feel that's a horrible invasion of privacy, if things get any worse around here, I may have to do that, too. With my Daffodils.
Because somewhere out there? Underneath drifts of fresh snow... is a whole garden of happy spring flowers. Not to mention a few hard to find Easter eggs.
April, I am sorry to say, is the second snowiest month of my year. [With March being the first.] Right about the time I've had it up to here with the color of white... 'true winter' kicks in. April Showers, high mountain style, snow vs. dreary rain.
Which is why I am ever so grateful to have Red Butte Gardens to fall back on. Not only did they dazzle us with the most amazing Orchids I've ever seen. They were selling these breathtaking blossoms for a mere pittance! (Long live the Mastercard.) Enjoy the show:
