Orchids of any kind were my Grandma’s favorite flowers.

Fond memories of my Grandma surfaced in January this past winter when I saw these Hong Kong Tree Orchids in full bloom in McAllen, TX.

Happy Mothers’ Day to all of the Moms and Grandmas out there. 

The most highly coveted of ornamental plants, the delicate, exotic and graceful orchid represents love, luxury, beauty and strength. In ancient Greece, orchids were associated with virility. In fact, Greek women believed that if the father of their unborn child ate large, new orchid tubers, the baby would be a boy. ~ Teleflora.com
