Dept. of Good Saturday

Only One Problem With Saturday

I forgot to take a picture of FB, BB and Neil at Hausermann's. I normally take a shot like that when we go out, but somehow I forgot to this time. Bad me. 

I did, however, take some pictures of orchids. Here, have two or three.

I love going there and taking pictures, because even a devotee of the thumb-in-the-lens school of photography, such as myself, can take pretty shots. (What surprises me after all these years, is that I believe I like the tiny orchids, the ones that look as if they were carved out of brown and golden wood, almost more than I like the other blooms. They're so delicate! Of course, I love the ones with heavy aromas, aromas of cinnamon and almost-rose, or almost-gardenia, too, because I can never get enough of those perfumes.

Speaking of which, while there, I also picked up some lovely soaps and perfume (she didn't call it that, but that's what it was, or at least it was perfumed oil), from the lady who always sells her wares at Hausermann's. I love aromatic things, and I never get to wear perfume outside the house anymore, because of peoples' sensitivities or outright allergies. Today, I came home and anointed myself with orchid perfume. And I am happy.

I'm glad you liked the pictures. I noticed there were a lot more orange and golden orchids this year than there were last year. I'm not sure why, and the white orchids are always the most profuse, but gold colored blooms were very much ascendant.

I am glad as well. I will remember Saturday, with the help of the perfume and the pictures.

Aren't they? And there were almost four acres of plants, of all shapes and sizes. It really is an amazing event, and I like going every year.
