Hello everyone !
It seems orchids wanted me to appreciate their stunning and amazing beauty. They somehow managed to find a way to reach me, as if they wanted me to reconsider my opinions about their beauty and show me how wrong I was. I have always ignore orchids, I was just not into them. The main reason I didn’t like them that much was their lack of foliage. I prefer plants with lots of foliage and orchids, to my liking, don’t have enough of them. But then, while visiting my family last December, my stepmother had received an orchid and didn’t want it so she gave it to me. I thought I’d get rid of the plant when the flowers would fade, I was more interested in the pot it was planted in than in the plant, but after a few days of looking closely at the flowers and taking pictures, I decided to keep it. The flowers had won, I was beginning to find them prettier than never before.
Then, two weeks ago, I went to the florist to buy roses, I wanted to take pictures of them. The employee said she wanted to show me flowers she had just received and who were not displayed in the shop yet. When she dropped the flowers on the counter I was mesmerized. Here were the most beautiful flowers I ever laid my eyes on : Some beautiful, amazing orchids in the most sumptuous colours of deep purple and azure blue. From that very moment I had a complete change of heart. Orchids had finally found their way to me and from now on they would be among my very favourite flowers. Isn’t it strange how life has its own way to make things happen sometimes…
I hope I didn’t do too much spelling and conjugation mistakes, usually my boyfriend revise my post before I publish (he’s perfectly bilingual but I’m not !) but he’s on a trip to Halifax, so he can’t.
Now I have to go prune my rose bushes while it’s not raining and I’m so excited, saturday afternoon we’re going to pick up our new kayaks and I just can’t wait !
