Take time to smell the roses…er… or look at the orchids

Life gets too hectic at times.

This year has been particularly busy, especially trying to get all my study assignments done, travelling to and from university (an hour each way three times a week) plus being on a few committees and trying to do some blogging and writing.

So I decided that it is time to smell the roses a bit more. Trouble is – the roses are not quite flowering yet. They have plenty of new growth and flower buds coming but  they need a few more days yet before they bloom.

So, enter my orchid collection. Is three pots of orchids a collection? Now I can take time out from the busyness of life, writing, study, committees and so on to sit there, cup of tea in hand and just look at the orchids.

Wonderfully soothing.

I just couldn’t help sharing these lovely photos of them with you, so you can relax looking at them too.
