Orchid and Winter Window

This wonderful orchid is blooming for the first time in two years. It arrived here in Maine as a gift after flying home from West Palm Beach, Florida. I love the sunny yellow color of the blossoms.

I thought a picture of my window would make for a nice contrast. It has been below zero here every morning for the past week. BUT IT IS STAYING LIGHT A LITTLE LONGER EACH DAY!
Ah, 'wintah' time in Maine. I'll bet I own more polar fleece items of clothing than the state of Texas has collectively. In my studio working on my National Board certification I look like a bundled up cave woman. No complaints though, it all feels good. I was meant to be a modern day cave woman pondering art lesson plans from my studio overlooking the wonders of winter. This IS the life. Cheers! - may 2013 be wonderful.
