Flower Friday

The Orchid Show at Chicago Botanic Garden is almost over. Did anyone get a chance to see it? I like how they switched up the flower arrangements this year, though it did seem like there were fewer plants overall. ??? Dunno, but it was beautiful, nonetheless.

On a side note, did you know that orchids are a sign of virility in men? And apparently some people also believe that if a woman eats orchid flowers, she is more likely to get pregnant with a son. So there’s that.

Anyhoo, here are some of my favorite lovelies from the show.

Why not throw in some cute succulents for good measure. 🤗

Spring is almost here, y’all!!! Hope everyone is enjoying these warmer days. 😃

  1. Such beautiful flowers! Did you know that the famous fictional detective, Nero Wolfe, had a whole floor of his house given over to being an orchid nursery? That’s your useless fact for the day… 😉

    1. Haha, no I didn’t know that! That would be gorgeous to look at every day. Unfortunately, I’ve NEVER been able to get an orchid to re-bloom. I can keep them alive for a while, but then it’s just leaves… 😅
