Wow - I checked out the link w/the snow pic - HOLY COW SMOKES BATGIRL! That was a TON of snow. Super Cool pics, tho. :-)
Love your flowers in the pots and your thoughts on 'it's summer somewhere' - that's the spirit!! Enjoy your week!

I should go buy some potted flowers for the house. At least I would have something alive and beautiful to look at until it's spring. Which I hope comes sooner rather than later!

Impressive amount of snow 5 years ago!
And yes your flowers are a great reminder of summer, warmth and beauty. I'll get some too!

Your front yard definitely looks better without a ton of snow on it. Lovely orchids.

I know it's easy for me to say sitting here in sunny Arizona but there's something soothing about so much snow, you have to hibernate (so long as you have all the essentials!) But glad you did not have to do that this year. Your orchids are a wonderful mini respite - gorgeous!

Beautiful orchid. I bought a primrose this week to cheer me up.I am trying to stay positive but it is tough this year.

Our weather has been up and down this winter, of course on a warmer scale. Your orchids are beautiful.

Great idea! Focus on the flowers! :-D I can't even imagine that much snow! You must have surely felt "cabin fever"! wowzers!

Patty Woodland said...

Your orchids are lovely. We were snowless until just this week.

Diana Taylor said...

Wow, all that snow looks so beautiful but not so great if you have to live with it. I love your orchids - a great reminder that warmer weather is on it's way!

Great photos! I just love the colorful orchids.

Bonnie said...

The snow is not melting here today. In fact, we are getting a whole new layer of it.

Beti Horvath said...

Yes, we live in a world of contrasts! Those orchids are just lovely!
