I love the way that orchids look, and all of the infinite variations. What also impresses me is the patience necessary to nurture these past their first bloom. I’m terrible with flowers, but I bought this over Easter, and it’s still alive, so hopefully that shall continue! Again, apologies for the lack of decent blog posts – still trying to figure out a work/commuting/blogging/life balance. Thanks for your understanding.

I was driving from Arizona to Colorado and did my requisite stop at Trader Joe’s along the way for a case of two buck chuck. They cunningly put their floral section right inside the door, and I was instantly struck by the color of these ranunculus. It wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t terribly logical but I decided that they could survive the 10 hour trip back with me in the car. Am I glad that I bought them! They’ve opened up wonderfully and only gotten prettier since then. I’ve been on the lookout and I haven’t seen any that were this color around. They were just begging to be put into the studio….here are some of my favorite shots.
Hopefully this will show you why I’m enamored of this flower! If you’d like to see more, please click here (I’ll be uploading a few more every day – can’t get too much of a good thing).
