Floral Friday Fotos – January 29, 2015

It has been a spell since I chimed in on the Floral Friday Fotos. I blame the holidays and drab winter weather where I live, in the mountains of Virginia.



We awoke to an astounding 9 inches of white stuff on Thursday morning. Even though I live within the Appalachian Mountain range in the Southwestern end of the state of Virginia this amount of snow all at once is uncommon. I just pray it fills the ground with the moisture to create beautiful flowers all season.

Luckily we indulge in the art of indoor plants. In my wife’s hair salon downstairs there is three orchids in various states of bloom. While upstairs where I work i get to enjoy this.

As you can see in the second photo this Amaryllis is 30 days past Christmas and getting ready to unfold into a six bloom display. If you are interested in seeing an updated photo when all six open please comment as such and I will add it when possible.
