It is REALLY cold this morning

Three of us opted for living room warmth

while one of us loves his own special box even if it IS really cold.

The orchids I saved from the trash

several years ago are really putting on a show this year.  Even with all the snow and the awesome cold and the wind blowing through the windows, this one has bloomed on two stalks for the past 5 MONTHS!!!!!
This photo was from September 4 of 2014  you can see the green trees still behind the orchid...

and these are from yesterday, snow and all....

it looks like it is good for a while yet!

This one hasn't been blooming quite as long,,,, only about 3 months, but still going.

My orchids shed some leaves

and I got to playing with them. so I stamped and wrote on one of each kind to see how age affects this..
Here's how they looked the day I did it.  I'll follow this up when/if they change in an interesting way.

there is SO little light lately!!!

This was, I swear, the next to last day there was light out there....
I love the way those jade plants I rescued from the building trash room have grown,  Jade is such a gorgeous thing...

I have been teaching my friend Maddie to knit

She finished a baby hat, but models were rather thin on the ground in my apartment.

18th Street near 6th Avenus

This place corners the market on unusual appliances and shows them off every day.  I know I have shown their display before but I loved today's version.
