More Orchids I cannot help myself; I adore everything about these beautifully exotic plants, most especially that I shared my passion for Orchids with my Mother; who is of course the person who introduced to me this marvelous plant.  Thus, Happy Mother’s Day — I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Motherhood than…

A Bit of Paradise There are people, places, and things, which often leave one with more questions than answers; such was this stop in Pennsylvania, near Wiley’s Bridge, No. 19.
