aliens staring at me

everyone assumes these are flowers, but what if they’re faces? did you ever thing the bamboo was intend to restrain them, from escaping, rather then helping them stand tall?

the light was just right at leaf & petal, Mountain Brook, Alabama

  1. What can I say. I’ll accept all the alinens of all world if they can trigger this kind of creative work. They are absolutely awesome. Thank you for sharing, Amy.

    Best Regards,

      They are awesome, these orchids. Perhaps, i am being mean because i cannot keep one alive for a week at home. Thanks for looking & commenting, Omar! ~amy

    Must be something in the water in Alabama!

      what ever is in the water at the nursery, it is NOT in my water at home. i can kill an orchid in days. They hate me! ~amy

        Is the feeling mutual? Maybe they can read your thoughts.

        No, Emilio, the orchids WANT to stare at us, which is why they look like that. AND their eyes follow me throughout any store. Do not creep me out further by planting (ha, a pun!) a seed in my vivid imagination that they can hear my thoughts. Wait, if they really can read my thoughts, then they know they’ve been discovered for what they really are. I’m ok though, phew, that i can kill them in seconds of purchase, whereas the grocery store can keep them alive forever. Just be careful around them, ok? ~amy
