Black and white

Our kitchen shelves.
My orchids against the blackboard
in our studio.

It is such a beautiful day today,
the sky is electric blue and the sun is shinning.
I think I'll take my watercolors outside
for a change.

That orchid is beautiful!! I long for electric blue skies here -- we're still of a pale blue grey variety -- but it is taking on the hue of a spring sky!!

Your shelves are amazing! And I'm jealous of your outdoor pursuits - it's cold here!

The simplistic beauty of your stacked white dishes on warm, wooden shelves was just what I need today! Your lovely orchid is icing on the cake. Thank you ever so much, FJ

Your photograph of orchids looks more like an illustration than a photo. They're simply beautiful.

i sooo long for an orchid of my own. A friend gave me an orchild once upon a time but we left it behind when we moved. It's amazing how much life a live plant can bring to a room/
