Green or Black Thumb

We finally got some flowers for inside the house.  They're orchids, and we made the investment because one of the wives of Andreas' local employees grows them - so the orchid will have a good home when we leave.  This one is from the local Metro and is beautiful.  It wasn't -that- expensive, either, for an orchid.  Now to see if I can make it bloom a couple more times before I give it away.

My Backyard in Early Summer

This is a picture of my backyard from the balcony at the back of the house.  The back wall is ours and has two areas - a storage room and a quincha with attached full bath.  It's used as a shady place for the back when grilling.

And this is the same yard from ground level.  That bush in front is a gardenia.  It smells wonderful at the moment.
