Lovely flowers, like the orchid in the middle. I went to a local greenhouse and the had a worker go get my mulch for me. A valued customer they said.Lots of new flowers in my yard as usual.

We went to the zoo this weekend and I saw the most amazing orchids. I don't know how they say they are easy to keep. Mine haven't sent up new stalks in over a year.

Happy Monday Betty. I hope you're feeling a little better.

Pretty flowers and quote. I especially like the middle flower but I don't know what it is so I'm not going to admit to liking it best.
Be well.
