Revisit Week – Orchids

What do you do when you have a displaced acute phalanx fracture?  You wait for 4 to 8 weeks for it to heal; hopefully properly.  We all heal differently and I have to stop watching the calendar and let nature and my osteoblasts do their work.  I also need to restrain myself from my usual habit of doing too much too soon so that I do not draw out the healing time.  I say this because I am now 2 weeks into repairs and am happy to say that steps are no longer my mortal enemy.  Going up has gotten better but coming down? Not as well.  What does this mean? It means I can get back to my office and edit some new photos that have been languishing on the hard drive.  Yippee!

To celebrate this small (but large to me) step towards footwear that doesn’t include velcro,   I am celebrating by posting some of my favorite orchid shots.  Such variety! Such beauty! I hope you enjoy them, your weekend, and if you partake in any Derby events I hope you post pictures 🙂

Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

    I’ll be in my stylish velcro footwear for another couple weeks; we’re fashion trend-setters this season, Teri!

    Your orchids are absolutely stunning!

      Thank you, Cindi! I was just going to ask you about your foot too 🙂 I’m supposed to stay in mine until it doesn’t hurt or until I can handle a flat shoe. Right now putting on a sock hurts to do so………..LOL

    I loved these orchid flowers the first time round … and enjoy them again this time round.. Mrs TD take it easy on the foot and rather give it the time to heal by itself… (says he that keeps pushing himself for some kind of progress.)

    ….it’s reflections time…… as you heal reflect on the past and now what will come in the future….
    It makes the healing go by so quirky! Yea right you say. HA HA Orchids are lovely and you have captured some pretties. Beautiful!

    Your orchid posts are some of my favorites, Teri, but, then again, I’m biased. 🙂

      Thank you 🙂 Had follow up visit with doctor today who told me in about 3 weeks it should be all healed although it might still not be 100% feeling right for some time after.
