Well we find ourselves in Boston for this Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day and the outdoor flowering is definitely limited. So the focus is once again on orchids.
We did take a walk around the yard today and, although they don’t have the heavy layer of snow that we have in Frederick, the flowering and color is definitely on the side that requires considerable imagination. I was struck once again by the unusual Hellebore variety ‘Red Silver’
and there is an unusual Rhododendron with distinctive red buds in the kids’ garden.
But in the end the wonderful orchids that they have sprinkled around the sun-lit interior of their house are what captures the mind’s eye. I took pictures of the five that are in bloom right now and thought that I would share them in this posting.
Despite my hopes that winter will begin to pack up its bags I note that another 5 inches of snow are expected in Frederick tonight. I guess we will be a long time thawing out this year…
