Winter blooms

The orchids are budding and blooming again, a welcome sight on winter mornings.
Underneath the skylights, they seem so tender against the vast blue sky, or defiant against the bare and leafless branches that lie just the other side of the glass.
Here they are under blankets of snow.....

Love orchids.. Keep buying them. The Toronto botanical society held an orchid show this weekend.

If you're ever in Ajax, there's an orchid grower on Westney Road North.

This is so pretty, Diane. Haven't had an orchid in ages & ages. Maybe this spring.
