Ahh…life in the Midwest can be quite a meteorological adventure, particularly as late winter transitions to early spring. Personally, I adore my four seasons AND I love snow, but I would be untruthful if I said the occasional 70 degree winter day did not make me long for the warm, sunny, and flower-filled days of spring.
Perhaps to assist in making the wait for spring a bit easier to bear, our local botanical gardens hosts its annual orchid show each February. Just entering that once stark space now transformed to a tropical and fragrant floral paradise successfully chases away any winter doldrums–at least for a bit. I must admit that I am super fortunate, though: my husband grows orchids in our sun-drenched back studio room. We have tropical florals blooming at any given time throughout the winter months, along with geraniums and gerbera daisies that we winter over from our summer garden. As such, I am a happy camper. To help boost you from any winter blahs, here is a cyber orchid show of my own orchid photography gallery, including new flower art prints:
I find that adding a new floral print to my walls or mantle adds a bit of visual freshness to my winter decor and helps me prep for spring inside…long before the last snow melts and chilly winds blow. Until then…see you next week!
