An Early Christmas Gift
One of my orchids has bloomed just in time for Christmas! Oh how I love a Florida Christmas!
The bud has been developing for a few weeks, but I brought him inside just before he opened so we could enjoy it. Yesterday I went to get some close-ups of the flower, but another little beauty decided she wanted a close-up too...
It's Morgan!! She is very fascinated by the noises the camera makes and always comes running when it's out.
...easily distracted cat...
Today when I was leaving to run some errands, I noticed that the flower had opened even more, so I made a mental note to take some more pictures when I got home:
Even more beautiful than before! But if you look at the bottom left corner of this picture, you can see the ear of someone else who was waiting for a close-up of her own....
It's Brooklyn!! Soaking up the sun in our greenhouse window, no doubt. She's always ready for a photo session!
"I can't help it if I'm beautiful..."
"Here, let me show you my best side..."
"Okay, that's enough...I need my beauty rest!"
