Orchids on the windowsill


My mother loved orchids. She had quite a few of them and was one of the few people I knew who could make them flower again.

This is a small one that I picked up at the store a few weeks ago.

It is still flowering brilliantly! 

I am under no illusions that I will be able to make it flower again but it’s beautiful right now!

Makes me think of my mum.

All about home

Grace at home

The hearth and soul


  1. This is a lovely and unusual photo.. I have been tempted by orchids, but think they may be hard to raise.

  2. A lovely memory of you mom. I've never had one to try, but they are pretty.

  3. I'm so glad you found a flowering plant at the store that reminds you of your Mom. It's nice to have something to remember them by, and it fills our heart for a little while and be close to them once again. I hope the November days bring you many pleasant surprises.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
