Beverly’s January of Orchids & Sky

Today’s photos were taken by my friend, Beverly, who lives in tropical Plantation, Florida in South Florida. She’s shared her beautiful orchids before. I love orchids, but I can’t grow them!

I’ve shared Beverly’s orchids several times before. She has plants hanging around the outside of her home in Broward County which is a tropical growing zone. (Ft. Lauderdale, FL is in Broward.) This last month has been a wonderful time for orchid blooms. The light purple with a dark center started blooming at the end of December and has continued right up to this week.

On January 10th, Beverly captured Altocumulus clouds in the morning.

Two days later a feathered friend dropped by.

There are real perks living in a tropical zone.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. She has so many lovely orchids! That is definitely not something I can grow here; though I have one or two I’ve managed to keep alive for a good year or so indoors until it’s outgrown its pot and then I am at a loss as to what to do with it and how to transplant it into something larger.

  2. You just reminded me to get to the Chicago Botanic Gardens, for February is Orchid month. Last time I was there—they were just beginning to post out! Gorgeous photos! Sandi

    1. If you draw a line across Florida from you east, you probably hit part of Broward County. You’re probably in tropical zone 10 – I’m in 9B which can go down to freezing every few years. I would like to be where you are I think!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
