Sunday pics

I haven't done one of these in a while but my mom in Florida sent me some photos a friend sent to her. All flowers that supposedly only grow in the Himalayas, some of which (maybe all...I wasn't entirely clear on that part) only bloom once in 400 years.
















Some of these look like birds, or tiny dancers, or little people. Sadly, I have no idea what the names of any of these flowers are, but boy, they sure are pretty.

In other news, you may congratulate me. I have successfully completed draft #1 of The Train to Somewhere (working title), and after letting it rest for a bit, I'll come back and tackle revisions. I have LOTS of notes.

Have a lovely week :)

  3. Exquisite orchids! I'm cynical enough to suspect photoshop is involved in at least some of them, though.

    Congrats on finishing draft #1 of your WIP!

  5. Huge congratulations.
    And wow. Some plants are incredibly patient about waiting for the 'perfect time' to bloom. And some photographers are lucky to be there.

    1. I'd say thanks but Debra's comment prompted me to investigate further and I now believe this once in 400 years thing is a hoax *sigh* The first one may be a cactus which blooms every year...

    1. They are stunning, but I think I fell for a hoax on the 400 years. I can't believe it came from my 80 year old mom's friend!!!

  11. Congratulations! Job well done. Those are stunning flowers, too. My husband has a photo identification app, though I don't know how it works. Be well and Happy Writing!

    1. They are stunning flowers, even if it is completely false (as I now suspect) that any of them only bloom once in 400 years. Ah, well.
