Leopard Print Orchid
Today’s flower has been renamed specially for you viewers. It might be confusing for those viewing on a small screen, but those who visit the image in full screen mode and zoom in will understand why it is a Leopard Print Orchid. This photograph was taken in March of this year, when orchids were thin on the ground in Nova Scotia ;-). It’s not always easy photographing flowers encased in plastic wrap in a builder’s merchant environment but this one didn’t come out too badly. Many of us in the Northern Hemisphere (the more Northern districts) are spending more time indoors, so I know many are enjoying these flowering in their homes. The only flowers that I have managed to keep flowering (I use that term loosely) are the cyclamen plants I bought a year ago. As I hurt my knee in a fall last week, I haven’t been able to get out walking for a few days, so for my enjoyment of nature today I am watching squirrels playing together up and down the tree trunk outside my window. There are greys, a black, a couple of babies at least, possibly red ones enjoying the fun. It is such a joyous scene! I hope something brings you a smile today, just as these have brought me.
