Blue orchids

I've never bought fresh flowers for the house before - they are considered a luxury. Spend money on something you can't eat, that dies in a week? My mother would have a fit. But it seems to be the norm here - I regularly see people stop by the florist and walk off with a bunch of flowers. Flowers do brighten up a spot the way few other things can.

These blue orchids glowed from where they sat on the shelf and called to me as I walked past. Blue is my favourite colour, after all, and so I splurged a tiny bit. As they say, there is a first for everything.
