Patience pays off – 2 counts

#1 : Spring will triumph.  We know that is true.  It just was hard to believe two days ago when we got over an inch of heavy wet snow.  All of a sudden, everything was white again.  BUT today it is all gone thanks to some rain and 50 degree temps and the hardy little crocuses are blooming their hearts out.  What a sight for sore eyes, a burst of vigorous color among the detritus of winter.

#2 : Way back in November I noticed a flower shoot on one of my dormant orchid plants (lower right hand corner of first picture).  Oh good, I thought, orchids for the holidays!  NOT.  The buds have taken their good old time to develop and bloom.  Finally, after almost 6 months of waiting, the first bloom is almost fully open.  There are 5 buds and I’m hoping for beautiful blooms through the summer.
