Day 245: Orchids in my life

Ron is the gardener in the family. In addition to handling our garden and koi pond Ron delights in keeping orchids in the house.  A few years ago someone gave us these bamboo planters which held orchids.  After they passed away to that orchid graveyard Ron got the idea to replenish the basket from time to time with a variety of orchids.  They make a colorful and verdant centerpiece.  This basket, which he designed, holds some spider plants from our garden in addition to the variety of orchids.  Isn't this beautiful?  The everyday things in my world astonish me sometimes.
