My buddy, Katie, invited me and her buddy Natalie, along to go to the annual Orchid show at New York Botanic Garden in Bronx. I'm not usually an Orchid kinda gal, but must say I was left breathless and surprisingly elevated after seeing all these gorgeous flowers in full bloom. 

I also remembered that the first flower I ever got from Jelsen was an Orchid. He carried it all the way from Hamburg to London. Here's a very old picture of that...

...And here is what my day looked like. Yes, I have an editing problem, but there can never be enough beauty on this page, right? My favorite part of this flower is the middle. I see everything from tongues to tigers heads in them. 

Do you see the tiger head on the top of this yellow one? I do!
