There's An Orchid For Your Mommy...

Yeah, according to those lyrics, I am one holiday behind. No wonder, since I don't pay much attention to holidays, but every time I see an orchid, for some odd reason that song pops into my head.

Anyway, normally we don't fall prey to the commercial holidays like Easter and Mother's Day, but we do love stopping in at the Orchid Barn to get a glimpse of hundreds upon thousands of Orchids in their green houses. Not to mention the great deals they have in their little roadside shop!

Yesterday, we scored 4 Orchids for 20 smackers. Enough to go around for all the moms, and even one left over for us. The have every size, shape, color, and price range you can imagine. From very small, simple, single plants, to ginormous arrangements of several plants.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms (even those who are moms to non-human species.)
