Our Beautiful World - Bloom

I woke up this morning and spent a good deal of time browsing through the photos being shared over at Our Beautiful World.  The word prompt this week is Bloom.  Oh the floral bounty they have shared.  I recommend a stroll through those blog posts - it is sure to brighten your day.

I simply could not let the opportunity to join the fun pass me by.  I recently changed jobs and was blessed by a few of the ladies there with a gift of two orchid plants.  This first was gifted a few weeks ago and I must admit - the health of the plant is due to my friend's loving care.  The colors are gorgeous and vibrant and brighten my day each day!

This second, more delicate plant was gifted to me on my last day.  I have asked my husband to care for these lovelies at least initially as he's the one with the green thumb.  The petals are so soft and delicate and I feel the care of these ladies every day I look at my blooms.

Why don't you snap a few photos of the blooms in your part of Our Beautiful World and join the fun?


  1. Hello, Andie,
    many thanks for your comment on my Blog.
    Your orchids photos are really nice. I love them also very much

    Many greetings

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! How I envy you with a Jacaranda in your yard! I haven't seen it here around Sacramento (that's the area where I live now).
    How serendipitous, the pink orchid is the same as I was gifted by my oldest daughter for Mothers Day! By now all the flowers are gone though:) Because I don't have a green thumb either! And hubby, he wields the hammer, so no chance of a green thumb, haha.
    Great to have met you this way - have a happy week!

  3. Beautiful bloom for sure, I love Orchid!

  4. Oh that gorgeous! Beautiful photos! Thanks so much for sharing at OBW!!


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
