Indoor spring flowers

Not all signs of spring appear outside.  Our collection of orchids, some over 10 years old, spring to life with nature's clock calling them to flower.

These are a fragrant variety and lend their sweet smell to the collection.  We very much enjoy the long-lived display that all of these plants add to the panorama of developing spring colors.

The African violets contribute their cluster beauties to this presentation.  They are hardy and feature a long-mature phase to their cycle of life.

More plants add to the dozen or so that proudly brighten our southern-window induced estravaganza!  The upper left lavendar beauty was a gift from brother Ken and sister-in-law Patty -- Thanks!!
