Speaking of fierce winds, we had a house blessing this Saturday, and our priest and his wife came in with this lovely white, silk orchid arrangement (pictured below). I love orchids, especially when they cooperate and LIVE longer than three weeks.
And you would think that since this orchid plant is synthetic (pictured below), it would live forever. Correct? Not the case. After this picture was taken, I placed the plant on the hood of my car (in order to take a couple of more shots),and the next thing I heard was CRASH! BANG! SMASH!The wind killed my synthetic plant, and the ceramic base broke into several, sad pieces. Such a tragedy!
Luckily, neither my priest nor his wife know that I have this blog, so in their minds and hearts, their orchid plant will live forever in my home...and in this photo.
