It must be spring … or summer. Suddenly, there’s too many things going on and I don’t have as much time to sit and write about randomness again. I’ve been taking photos, with all these accompanying blog-posts running through my head, and yet nothing moves. Such is life …
I walked into a grocery store one day, and came upon these orchids. I stopped in the middle of the aisle, as I stood there and watched these blue and purple creations.
After having been to the orchid shows, I know that they were probably dyed. These orchids don’t come in these colours … or do they?
After a little research, I came across this article about electric-blue phalaenopsis orchids that stopped shoppers in their tracks at supermarkets. Hey! Did they see me do exactly just that??
Hmmm … there’s even a warning there about not even thinking of a do-it-yourself dyeing process. Were they reading my mind again?? The thought did cross my mind, but I didn’t think I was ready to try dyeing orchids; I’m still experimenting with roses and other plants. Besides, this blue dye isn’t even available, so that takes care of that.
In the meantime, I’ll just sit here and admire the colours.
I’m so excited! Can’t believe that the weather is actually warming up! No rain! And we’re getting temperatures higher than 75 degrees a few days at a time!
Here’s some flowers for you that I found, wandering around the hotel during our soccer tournament last weekend. The boys were running around playing tag or man-hunt, or some such thing, and I wanted to keep an eye on them for a while.
So I took pictures of the flowers so that they wouldn’t notice me watching them.
Perfect cover, right? None of them paid me any attention …
I think we’re off on another busy weekend trip. Hopefully I’ll have some time to blog more .. I really should use this scheduling posts feature … or blog on the go …
In the meantime, enjoy the flowers, the hot sun, and the beginning of summer!
I’m off to a good start this summer with all my plans for crafting and do-it-yourselves … Hope I can continue, in between these soccer games and tournaments.
Here’s my first attempt at colouring flowers. I blogged about it last week in my other blog, the crafts one, and even got a science lesson. Well, science wasn’t really my favourite subject then; these days I just find it interesting.
