Not an Orchid. Still a Pretty Flower.

This is supposed to be a photograph of an orchid. Except that almost every single photograph of orchids that I took show up sideways when I post them here.  So, this will have to do until I can figure out how to re-position them. Kind of like the blogger’s version of playing God.

Well, maybe not quite that tall of a statement, but if you’ve been up since 5:30AM and are still waking up (me),  it will have to do.

You won’t know unless I tell you that this flower is blooming inside of a green house located on the estate of the Sonnenberg mansion.

Spring is a bit farther along down in Texas, judging by this lone Blue bonnet poking its head up down in Long Hollow.

The irony is not lost on me (nor should it be lost on you) that the former reached its peak and flowered INSIDE whereas that Blue Bonnet flowered OUTSIDE.  They are equally breathtaking, each in its own way.

Since I don’t think I can develop this post into a philosophical argument treatise on the moral superiority of either place: New York versus Texas being the symbolic implications of this post, I’ll quit while I’m ahead.

And leave you to enjoy the pretty photograph.  Y’all have a good day now.  [gplus count=”true” size=”Medium” ]

    It’s beautiful and the key point is, it found the conditions it needed to bloom! Each unique and glorious in its own way, right? 🙂 Can’t wait to see the orchid! (Thanks for the mention!)

      They are BOTH beautiful flowers – and what would we do without those “unique and glorious” differences? Life would be pretty dull, I’m thinking. The orchids are take-your-breath-away gorgeous! I’m looking forward to posting at least ONE photo …. and soon.
