This lovely Alice orchid was given to me by a castmate of a play I was in recently. It is one of the most beautiful things that greet me each morning.
A few weeks ago when I was at yoga, I noticed the most beautiful orchid on the windowsill. After class, I asked the instructor if she would mind if I took some photos of it with my iPhone. I took a few of the entire plant and then some close ups. When I zoomed in, I was surprised to discover this little lady staring right back at me!

My granddaughter brought this "Blue Orchid " for me on Dec. 17th. This was "Our Christmas" as that was when all the kids could get here (except my youngest and wife in TX).
Anyway it is very pretty and has opened a few more blossoms. And, yes it was DYED blue. First time I had seen orchids dyed. But florists have dyed flowers for many, many years.

I went to a local Orchid show, I could not pass up taking these pics.

The use of a single floral plant in a less than exciting room will focus attention on the elegant simplicity of the flowers used and away from the mundane in the room. It can add a lot by just being placed in a strategic viewing area or by its unique-ness - such as an orchid, which are reasonably easy to maintain.
