Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


We have seen so much snow this winter, although beautiful, I am ready to see something else.

While going through my photos I found these.



Just as I wonder / whether it’s going to die, / the orchid blossoms // and I can’t explain why it / moves my heart…

The Orchid Flower
by Sam Hamill


“All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.”
– Indian Proverb


“The ‘Amen!’ of Nature is always a flower.”
–  Oliver Wendell Holmes


“One of the most attractive things about the flowers is their beautiful reserve.”
–  Henry David Thoreau

“In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends.”
–  Kozuko Okakura

  11. These photos, just like the blooms, are gorgeous, Francine. For about 10 years, I lived near one of our conservatories. I loved going in there during the Winter. The humid air and blooms were a good reminder that Winter doesn’t last forever — even severe ones like this one. 🙂

  12. The beautiful orchids I grow and adore.
    Lovely …
