This is the sort of day it has been, for the most part, in my town today — this, the view from the balcony just a short while ago. The birds are singing a brighter tune, and that distinct wind that only blows in March, gently sways the pines and leafless poplars. The sun has shone brightly, resulting in this…
Now, those brownish yellowish greenish patches might not be very pretty, but when they’ve been covered for months by FEET of snow, seeing them is a revelation…a sure sign that the earth is finally starting to warm — Spring is on the way!
Inside, the first moth orchid (Phalaenopsis) that Charlie brought home is doing very well and appears healthy with two fat, green flower buds.
He brought another moth orchid home last week (gotta love that man!) and it also has buds on it. (below) They are of a different colour, so I’m anxious to see what happens with it. None of the tags, of course, even hint at colour.
And so, it’s Spring Forward! in more than one way today. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead when you retire tonight.
