Rabbit Hops

I was walking along the pond in snow and to keep busy I began to study all the pet tracks. This one was different. So I captured it on my phone.
Do you agree that a rabbit has hopped by?

One More

The contrast of the aging red poinsettia and the budding yellow orchid, the snowy background, all captured my fancy and I just had to take more shots. 

 There are two blooms now. I find the colour pattern of a patch of white in the centre very striking.

Samie's Orchid

This lovely blossom has just opened . The plant sits on our kitchen table where there is plenty of exposure to the sun in winter.  It took exactly a year for this plant to bloom again. All of us are very happy that it did. It's such sunny contrast to the deep snow nearby on the deck.

Have you ever had an orchid? Have you ever had it bloom again?

                                  The little fellow watched me from above, 
While this critter chose to look up at me.
          Were they admiring me in my new swimsuit as I lay by the pool?

A snow storm is on the way but I'm focusing on these at least for a few moments.
                                Blossoms seem to pop up in hidden places.

This is one of my favorites.

 At the Grand Palladium in Mexico it's siesta time and just like these beauties, we took the time to relax and enjoy the paradise setting that surrounded us.  
 It ended too soon but we'll travel again because it's fun to come home.

It's January 1st, one of the warmest days recorded for some time. The snow recently plied up on those chairs has all melted away within a day. The rainy background separated by the window glass has created an unusual effect for a snap of our indoor plants. Watermarks??
