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.
