WPC — Orchid Awakening

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, we’ve been task with showing, in the spirit of rebirth in the spring season, an image of an awakening.

Where I live (San Francisco, CA), we don’t really have a old, snowy, freezing winters, so many plants (and other living things) continue to grow and bloom year round.

My wife loves orchids and we have a bunch growing in our garden and five or six potted orchids inside our home. During most of the year, some of them are in bloom. Right now, though, there’s only one that seems to be “awakening.” And so I decided to take this picture (with my iPhone 8 Plus) of the new buds that my wife assures me will be opening up over the coming few days.

    Nice, my wife has really good luck with orchids but we get cold winters so the plants remain house plants.

    For some reason I want to break it. I won’t but I want to.

    Very nice capture! I wish we could grow orchids in our garden in New Jersey.
