Delightful flowers...

When we go to the city for my Dr. appointments.....we afterwards go to the Conservatory and the orchids are breath-taking!

I could never grow anything like this, only in my dreams and maybe not then.  I have been listening to audio books and enjoying them.  I joined Audible for their free month and am listening to 'The Yearling' ....one of the free books I chose.  I remember sitting in school, about the 8th or 9th grade study hall....a fiercely hot day and no air conditioning.  I was off in the Florida everglades with this book, and when the bell rang to leave I never heard it.  I vaguely remember classmates trying to get my attention to tell me it was time to go home.  Imagine!.....what a book.

We did go to two Good Will half price sales and that was so much fun!  I found scads of skirts and a few tops....$2.00 each. It is coldish here and overcast.  Gloomy.  A good evening to watch Christy maybe.  Hoping all is well with you....

"Psalms 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee."

We always try to do one or two "fun" things when we go to the Dr. in the city also.
Such pretty flowers. Glad you are enjoying the audible books.
We shopped at a goodwill tonight. Found a rain gauge for the garden.
God bless your evening. xo

Absolutely stunning, my friend. The petals look like delicate lace.

Hugs to you!

I could never grow violets, orchid would be the same I think
but they are beautiful.
Glad you are getting out and hope feeling better.

They are so pretty and ruffly! Have you seen the movie, Cross Creek? You would like it, I think! Hugs, Diane
