Juxtapositions & Antidotes




I think you can tell which is which, right? How odd--desert cacti against glaciers (well, icicle wall anyway.) A juxtaposition I've never had a chance to see, much less photograph. I may need to play with this idea a bit more!

And even while the entry way tends towards quite cool (I'm about to move all my orchids to a warmer place) the geraniums love this micro climate and have burst into bloom. I thank them for the antidote to winter!

Those are really neat pictures with the cactus in front of the glacier. And it is really nice to see such a pretty flower in the winter time.

ah, cacti - I didn't know what those things were. Can you tell I'm not a nature sort of person? LOL

I'd like to see your Orchids. I have a lousy time trying to grow them. I think they are so beautiful.
