Mandarin Orange Monday

So good to be back with a cleaned out, no malware computer.  And fitting that I could start out with MOM and my long time friend, Lori ...
Orchids at the Batonical Gardens Orchard show ...

Happy MOM Everyone ...



  1. The orchids are such a lovely colour!! And I like very much what you've done with the photos. I still have so much to learn!

  2. Beautiful colors indeed and terrific photos!! I do agree with EG, I do like what you've done with them!!!

  3. I agree, your orchids are beautiful. That last version is my favorite. I love the colors. It's so good to have you back. I've missed you. Your computer must feel like new. I wonder if Malware is the reason why mine seems to be slow...or maybe I am just too anxious. Wayne tells me it is me. haha.

    By now, your area must be looking a bit more Springy. We are still buried in snow, but it is melting. I get so jealous when I read of the plants that are coming up in other folks' yards. It will be sometime in April before we get to see the bare ground here. Maybe there are some things trying to grow beneath all this snow? Wouldn't that be wonderful!

    It's good to be home (though I do miss Florida). I'll be busy for the next couple of weeks getting caught up on all my mail. phone messages and the happenings in the main house while I've been gone. It's nice to be busy.

    Now I need to get busy around here. Andrea, you and Izzi have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

  4. Happy MOM. I do like your post. It made me smile. The last picture is a delight.
    Have a nice day.

  5. The Orchids are beautiful and I love your first edit best.

  6. Welcome back. You have been missed - love these images.

  7. I can see on your post you are happy to be back :)

    and, yes. I took the crocus image yeterday. Our spring is in full swing. Hepaticas, coltsfoot, all of them is smiling now :)

  8. Hi Andrea...I had my blog site crash and had to have my tech person reboot it this weekend...what a pain. Terrific processing♪

  9. Welcome back! I think my favorite is the second painting. I had my registry cleared of almost 900 errors and...I see no difference at all in how my computer runs. Glad yours is better.

  10. Greetings from grey, almost raining, Helsinki! Good to be back at home :)
    I like all of these but softness in the second one melts my heart....
