Consider Your Visit here Today a Rest Stop


Relax and get comfy in your chair. Sit all your problems and frustrations down for a couple of minutes. There, feel better?

I have a little French lavender plant here by my desk. Close your eyes and I believe you can smell it’s relaxing soft fragrance.

Now look at the little flowers in the photo. They are orchids and their common name is very appropriately, Dancing Ladies. Imagine them swirling their beautiful little yellow skirts in time to a gentle melody.

I know that I enjoy an unexpected place to just relax for a little while, and I thought that perhaps you would too.

Enjoy and stay as long as you like. You needed this break, didn’t you?

Very nice & what a great fragrance ; )

We're all covered with snow and the wind chill is near or below 1 or 2 degrees.

I have this blooming now too. One of the brightest yellows I have ever seen. I love lavender so much...soap, spray, color...anything lavender.

Nice, indeed! But unfortunately, just like a real rest stop, you have to get back on the highway. Think you could package a "to-go" version anytime soon?

I was thinking, before I read the post, that they looked like little ballerinas. Very sweet.
