The {Serenity} Project – White Orchids

A couple years ago, my friend Jenny came to visit me in the mountains to do some photography.  When she arrived she gave me a beautiful white orchid as a gift.  It was so beautiful!  Orchids are so delicate and need such special care so I was touched she brought me one she had tended herself.

So here it is 2 years later and the orchid she brought is still thriving.  It’s still thriving because I haven’t touched it – well, other than to move it to better light for photographing.  My husband has the green thumb around here so anything that’s living (and not human) in our home is because he’s tended to it, not me.

Spring was well on it’s way around here until the last couple of days, so I spent some serenity time indoors taking images of this gorgeous flower.
