Dancing Lady

My mother loves orchid and one orchid she used to have is the dancing lady. I do not know if this is the name of this orchid but my mother told me it's a dancing lady. She said to me one time "take a good look and focus your eyes to the flower, does it look like a lady dancing to you?" I just nod my head because I can't believe it, it does look like a lady dancing a flamingo. What you think?



I am juggling if I would post this photo and say something about it because this just reminds me of my mother, her love of flowers. If only she is still alive I will buy the most beautiful orchid she could think of. Because a mother should be happy at all times and a daughters duty is to make her happy. I would not make this post longer because it made me feel sad. Ciao!

Hi Kim,

I'm so glad you shared your photos and your story; those orchids are gorgeous! And they really do look like dancing ladies because the the big yellow petals look like a lady's skirt. What a sweet way to honor your mom.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and taking time to leave a comment. I hope you have a great week.

Those "Dancing Lady" Orchids are lovely as are the sentiments you hold of your dear momma. Mine passed away 19 years ago this past Saturday, and I miss her always. I see a flower, or something every day that reminds me of her. Have a wonderful week~
