Winter continues dreary and brown in Southern Indiana. And in response, my orchids are blooming like never before. This orchid has at least 15 blooms on it. It’s an impressive show of color.
Plants that are dormant or dead. No snow. No ice.
My seed order has arrived and the packets are tucked away for at least another month. It will be even more time before the abundant goldfinches at my feeders begin to add color to their feathers.
My garden is quiet, and it’s been a challenge to find something new or interesting to share.
But I’ve noticed the sunrises and sunsets have been particularly beautiful. The thin, cold air and the lack of color from the trees highlight the skies. Frosty sunrises I catch while eating breakfast with my cat. However, I’ve seen the most brilliant sunsets without my camera while I’ve been driving across the city.
