A Colorful Orchid

Today, I photographed one of my Orchids.  The flower doesn’t look real to me, so I photographed the entire plant to prove that it is. The beautiful color is one of the reasons I love orchids, and have several. Go to About Orchids.com,  if you would like to learn more about orchids and see some of the many varieties available.



A Trip to the Local Garden Nursery


It’s Thursday which means it’s Artist Date Day. In my last post I showed the African Violet Pot I’m making in my slip casting class, and even though it will be a couple of weeks before I finish the project, I thought it would be fun to select a new plant. A visit to the local nursery would also be the perfect place for this week’s Artist date,  because it’s certainly colorful and has a creative atmosphere. Both are requisites for an Artist Date.

I love the green house at the nursery where they keep the African violets and orchids. Here are only three of the many gorgeous plants I saw while browsing.
It’s a good thing that I traveled by motorcycle and not car today, or else I would have come home with more than just the one African Violet.
After this lovely white orchid I’ll leave you with a splash of color.
It really was the perfect place to go for this week’s Artist Date.
