...goes the orchid

I finally decided it was time to play over at Kim's
I've promised myself that what's going on with my parents wasn't going to be bigger than me, or take over my life.  Part of that promise is not giving up the things that mean the most to me and that includes taking lots of pics and staying engaged.  It's a delicate balance because of the emotions, phone calls & paperwork that are being dumped into this life event. I haven't blogged about that "Consider the what if's" talk yet because I'm still in the middle of it. But there is an end in sight...sort of. I know when I don't have all the insanity to deal with, I want to be in a good place where my life just continues as always and I don't have re-invent anything. 
That's my goal...
So, today for Texture Tuesday, the theme is POP and at least one of Kim's textures. My orchids are blooming like crazy and they seemed perfect for the prompt. I've used KK's cherishscripted 
Happy Snapping
thank's for "popping" in...(no pun intended)


  1. that orchid is certainly a pop of color! your photos are fantastic - what a great eye you have...I scrolled through several older posts...incredible...and though I didn't get the story about your mom, I hear that you are struggling...and my heart goes out to you...I had an ordeal with my mom...descent into Alzheimer's...
    and thanks for stopping by my blog today...I'm your newest follower...

  2. Really great with that blue background.

  3. so happy to see this beautiful orchid with your name on it in the TT linky thing. it's so hard to find the right balance between the real-life, less than perfect bits and the joy of a brilliant orchid. glad to see you leaning this way today. xoxo

  4. I should be so lucky to have orchids like these blooming. I killed the only one I ever had....yours are beautious!!

  5. Great plan of attack. This photo is amazing - perfect composition, texture / edit, color, clarity. I would make it into cards and send them to everyone.
