I think this post represents perfectly the circle of life. The first two photos are of two of my orchids that are ending their circle of life (at least for now...who knows? They might grow a new "spike" and have new blooms). The next series of photos are of my orchid that just started blooming! It's the third time that it is blooming since I've had it. I can't be happier!
