Photo Hunters Yellow and Caturday Cat Art

This week's Photo Hunters theme is YELLOW

Auntie El had a couple of orchid plants that she was given as gifts.  When Auntie El passed away, Mom took the plants.  One of them originally had a purple flower but said that it would be white when it bloomed the next time.  The other, smaller one, only bloomed once.  Auntie El was always threatening to get rid of it because it didn't flower again.

Here's the one that was purple.....notice the YELLOW center to the white flower?


Here's a close-up of the one that would never bloom again....


A full shot of the smaller one....

The White one and the smaller one....


Mom thinks that the fact that they are both flowering at the same time is Auntie El's way of saying things are okay.

Allie says the flowers are pretty......


Today is also Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop


We used the Dry Brush filter on the photo of Allie with the flowers.   We think it turned out pretty nice!

That is such a sweet picture of Allie and the Orchid! I think orchids are beautiful. But I've always been afraid to try growing them.

Luv your orchids!

Those orchids are just gorgeous. And good for you to keep them going and getting them to bloom. Orchids are hard to do but they are so very pretty. What a good memory of Auntie E. Take care.

Auntie El would be thrilled the one bloomed again! I have a moth orchid that I'd given to my favorite aunt. After she died, her husband gave the orchid back to me. I'm impatiently waiting for it to bloom again :-)

Remember the poem about the "flowers that bloom beyond the garden wall" ... somehow Elinor's soft touch is there in ways we do not know.
With love,
Ann

What a beautiful thought about your Auntie El.
Orchids are one of the most beautiful flowers...there just something so special about them.

Mommy says that she is positive that orchid flower is definitely a message from Auntie El. Allie looks so lovely admiring it, and Mau is so glad to see her today. Have a great weekend all.

What a gorgeous art picture of Allie and the orchid, just love it!

Susan Willett said...

Orchids are crazy flowers. Beautiful but weird. I've never heard of a flower that blooms different colors. Weird. Just like an orchid.

(BTW, I think you're right about the message.)
