Cold and Rainy Day

I know better than to believe the weather reports, but today was just too much; I can deal with cold weather in November...but when it rains all day long it can get annoying.
I came home in the afternoon and the bed was just too tempting to pass up, so I decided to take a nap. As it turns out it was a short one because a phone call woke me up. I decided not to waste the rest of the afternoon and I came up with these three ATCs. They are all done with watercolors, the two in the top will be on their way to another house tomorrow; the poinsettia will have to wait for a bit longer.

I love orchids.

When I was a child, my dad built a greenhouse and had (at one count) over 200 orchids growing, dozens upon dozens of different types. Amazing things.

I find Orchids to be very temperamental, and to require lots of care; however my Mom doesn't stress over them, they are outside hanging from a tree and they do just fine. I'm sure that if I tried taking care of them I'd kill them all in less than a week...that's why I prefer painting them to taking care of them :)
