A New Bloom on Straight out of the Camera Sunday

This lovely yellow phalaenopsis has begun to bloom.  It has three buds on it that will open up over the next week.  This is the newest addition to the tiny collection of orchids.  My husband bought it for me for our 39th Anniversary last October.  It had blooms on it when it was purchased but, they did not last more than a month before they began to drop.  I am happy to know that it has settled in and has begun to bloom again.  The blooms are so delicate looking.  For more fabulous photos go to the Sunday meme "Straight out of The Camera Sunday at    Valerie

Love the color! Beautiful.
Hi Valerie,
I had to laugh, because most of the photos I post are straight out of the camera. I am just learning how to make adjustments. I do crop, though.

I've never grown orchids. I'm thinking about trying one, though.

Such a lovely and delicate yellow blossom! I've never tried to grow orchids; I always thought they were too fussy, but so many bloggers like yourself are tempting me with photos like these.

Thanks for your recent visit on my Bloom Day post; looks like we both have to settle for indoor blooms at this time of year. I had to laugh at your "grandchildren." I have three furry grandkids, too, including a pug who looks a lot like Gizmo. Mine all live too far away for me to babysit, however:)

Your orchid is lovely. Thanks for playing along, today.
Orchids are so difficult to keep happy. It looks like you've got the touch.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
