Orchids: The Power of a Flower

MARCH 2014: I’ll admit that it’s a stretch to correlate the beautiful orchid flower to the muddle of a house elevation project. While one is majestic, capable of inspiring awe, the other is a nonstop exercise in frustration. But we’re in a bit of a holding pattern waiting for FEMA to weigh in on our house elevation to determine our new (discounted) flood insurance premiums and  it’s still too cold out just yet to address our extensive landscaping needs.

A brief diversion from the regular topic, I’ve decided to share the beauty of nature via the orchid show at the New York Botanical Garden in New York City, Enjoy

Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
