Photo a Week

Aackk!  It's Tuesday.. almost Wednesday already.  Our theme for this week... (we usually post the photo on Monday)... was something "Mom" in keeping with it having been Mother's Day weekend.

My weekend days were totally confused with Mr. BV being away ... and when I picked him up at the airport I was thinking it was Sunday...and sort of had it in my mind to pretend it was too... because he missed our Sunday here... so I made a little chicken for dinner...and then...well I reeeeelly did think it was Sunday!  So, of course, Monday went by and then all of a sudden here it is Tuesday ... hahahah .... oh, well...

I decided not to whine this year about my Mom being gone.   Not that I don't miss her all the time...but, who needs to hear more whining...and ...well, I guess I was lucky to have her for as long as I did.  I have one friend who lost her Mom when she was only 9 .... that really makes me think how lucky was I?

My Mom always loved little things... which was good, because we couldn't afford much in the early days and she got very little of anything.  All the shops were full of flowers and when I saw this cute, tiny orchid, I decided to get it in memory of Mom.   She would have loved it.
I don't know anything about orchids... and they had no info on it...which I found strange...but, I'll google it and see what it says.

































The colours are absolutely beautiful....



















Okay...this is amusing.... that large one? ....is a faux orchid.  Plastics.... but, look how real it looks beside the real thing!



















Here's to you Mom.......

That is a lovely way to remember your mum. Both orchids look exquisite to me but I guess the real one just has something really special about it.

Both the orchids are beautiful, and I think your mom would have liked the real and the faux one.

Lovely pics!

Those orchids are beautiful, Vee, and I would never have guessed one was a fake if you hadn't told us.
