This time of year we're usually making trips mainly to the Great Swamp Nursery for our annuals. I get to pick out the flowers and HWNSNBP gets to pot them up. Sounds fair doesn't it (he is color blind after all). He has a few things planted already, but I decided to go with something that was already in the house. This lovely orchid plant that the staff gave me for Administrative Professional's Day. I can't keep it at work because the office temperature fluctuates too much. With the school being empty on the weekends, in the warmer weather it would be too hot, so I brought it home to join the other orchids I've been lucky enough to keep alive. I hope it finds it's new home as cozy as they have.
I did the sketch in pencil and asked HWNSNBP (He Whose Name Shall Not Be Published) if he knew what it was. He said "yes, it's the orchid on the table. Of course it will look more like an orchid when you color it." I guess that was a suggestion that I should color it. So here it is.
I hope you'll take a look at the other plants that the Picnickers are sharing today. You can by clicking here. Oh, and should you like to join in next time, the theme is BOOKS.
