Spring has sprung early, whether you were ready for it or not, and it would be quite a shame to miss out on it, especially here in Saint Louis. Soon it’s going to be a hundred degrees and a hundred percent humidity and we’ll all be lamenting the loss of those breezy days in the 80s. I’m not a big fan of that kind of regret, so we’ve been spending A LOT of time outside.
I’m in taking-pictures-of-flowers mode, which is working out well with the Natural Light challenge in this month’s Project MCP, because flowers were made for natural light. For my submission I decided to try the free blog-it board template from MCP:
A couple of those are from the neighborhood, but the orchids are from the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. If you are in the area, I highly recommend going – it was stunning! Here are a few more of my favorite blooms from the Orchid Show (these are all SOOC because I had WAY too many pictures from the day to edit them all).
The Old Man
The Flamenco Dancer
This one is clearly trying to eat you.
My daughter’s favorite: all orange!
But looking at these pictures is not enough. Get outside and let the sunshine bloom you a little bit after the long (or even not so long) winter!
