meanwhile… back at the orchid

when last we visited my budding beauty, it was just beginning to show signs of greatness. i have no idea how long it takes to birth a bloom. i've waited two years, so good golly, i can wait a bit more!
i took a little snapshot of her (her, right?) on the 25th, and then followed up today because we have sunshine for the first time in ten days, and i was so giddy, and i think so was she. or at least she should be. i think i saw her craning her bloom to face the window better.
like an expectant mother, i check on her often. it's been so long since she's produced, i don't even remember what color she is.

another thing that sort of snuck up on me is daylight.
it's currently almost 6 pm and we still have sunlight (having any sunlight around here is noteworthy, actually) and it will not go down for probably another 30 minutes or so. the shadows are long on the driveway, but the days are getting longer. the sun is just languishing in this crispy (okay, frikkin cold, but whatever) spring air. 
it won't be long now…
sunshine. just exactly what this tired soul has yearned for…
mmmmm hmmmmmm. yes, ma'am.


  1. Compared to the rest of the nation that has had a harsh winter, we've had a comparatively lighter one (though people are still complaining). Today though, the teacher who is always cold, too her kids out for recess. That's two, count 'em, two days in a row.

    However...I am not looking forward to the end of this school year. I will mourn the moving on of these kids, they are the best group I've ever spent my days with.

    So, while I'm celebrating warmth, I'm really hoping to slow down time. Kidding myself, eh?

    Looking forward to the bloom,

  2. mmmm, yes, I agree...SUNSHINE!

  3. It's looking good. Oh those long days with light are always welcomed.
