Blue Monday - Blue Orchids

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

Many people place the Blue Monday button on the top of their post so that visitors can easily spot it. Another Blue Monday button can be placed on the sidebar of your blog.

Leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had a super Mother's day, and I hope that you did too. After church, Johnny and I went over to our son's house. His oldest daughter and her boyfriend fixed us all dinner, and boy, was it good! I spoke on the phone with Debi and Jane and received several neat gifts. I am so blessed.

Do members of your family get into the Blue Monday? fun by looking for items of our special color?

My son spotted these gorgeous Blue Orchids for sale at the Home Depot. Being the well-trained person that he is, he took this shot for our Blue Monday day.



Notice the price! Normal orchids sell for half as much--around $15.
However, I must say, I think they're worth the money.
What do you think?


Happy Blue Monday!

mississippi artist said...

Wow that is a vibrant blue. I have never seen a blue orchid, guess thats why they are so pricey.

I think orchid is truly a delicate and lovely flower. I do not recall seeing any in this bright blue.

Happy Blue Monday, i like the blue flowers!Blue Monday

Judi said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally *hugs*
I hope you had a very lovely Mother's Day..

Those orchids are beautiful and I have actually never seen any that colour. They are so full and gorgeous. I think that price is fair because around here they are more than $15. to start with. In any case they look worth it.

have a wonderful day
Judi

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, The blue orchids are stunning. I have had orchids and had bad luck with them. And, that was when I lived in Florida. There is a lot to know about raising or taking care of orchids. I would admire them but would not own them. Your son is a sweetie. The photo is very nice.

Wishing you happy days.
Love, Jeanne

black eyed susans kitchen said...

Hi Sally, Lovely orchids...I was admiring them in our nursery a few weeks ago!

Happy Blue Monday! I left a link to my edible vintage jewelry post. Hugs, Lisa

liberal sprinkles said...

Happy Blue Monday, Sally. Those are very unusual colors for orchids I think. Very bright and cheery!
Grace

Dorincard said...

I can tell you that there are over 25,000 species of orchids, and you can read by yourself what the name means, etc.
Those super-blue orchids may seem unnatural, with extra pigments/silicone/steroids or something...
But Mother Nature has many intensely-colored things.
Happy Blue Monday, Sally! :)

Daniella said...

Ann said...

Your Son is truly well-trained. These orchids are just striking. Love the deep color. My granddaughters are becoming trained too, the other day one of them said "Is there any thing for yellow or orange, I have something".
Ann

Mylene said...

Icy BC said...

jlshall said...

Such pretty blue orchids! But then I would expect wonderful orchids down there where you live. Glad you had a great Mother's Day. Hope today is nice for you, too!

~Joy @ Joysweb

Loui♥ said...

Definitely BLUE!
I saw the same at my local supermarket..
as much as I adore the color blue,
I much prefer orchids in their natural colors found in nature..
have a Happy Blue Monday!!
warm sandy hugs!!
Loui♥

Grandmother Wren said...

Very pretty orchids. I love the color. I get scared when plants cost that much - it's been my experience that the more expensive a plant is, the more likely it will be that I will kill it. Same with fish for the fish tank. I always buy the little feeder fish - they live for years!

Happy Blue Monday, Sally

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Have a wonderful week and God bless,

Leovi said...

Sorry, I have withdrawn my not having blue link to view the owner of the blog. Fact that I respect and follow as she is responsible. My post has all of five images and themes are blue, NOT the dominant color and is in the fundamental parts of the work, But There is blue and has an important function of contrast. If anyone is curious can visit off-topic:

The orchids are gorgeous. I would consider buying them at that price if I thought I wouldn't kill them.
