Just a Single Water Drop by LadyAliceofOz Just a Single Water Drop by LadyAliceofOz
** FULL VIEW PLEASE **

The weather in North Carolina on Thursday, the 6th of March, was :sun: and absolutely beautiful :w00t: and warm enough to be outside without a jacket :wow: :clap: so, the 4 of us (my sweet hubby =TThealer and I, along with our daughter =LadyBlacksword and her fiance *FlipWardDragon) went to see the Orchid Conservatory, and the rest of the grounds, at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, North Carolina.

This orchid was suspended just inside the front door of the Orchid Conservatory, and due to an extensive misting system, that runs periodically in the building, I noticed that this one had a single water drop condensed on it :aww:

Hope you find it interesting! :heart:

This one was so cool, I thought... because it was naturally occuring ... due to the misting system in the building :w00t:
Thanks for the :+fav:, my dear! :hug: Much appreciated!! :heart:

:O and I was feeling bad that our bulbs are only just starting to poke thru the ground! :faint: I sure hope it doesn't snow here, anymore :cries: We sure enjoyed "borrowing" the Spring in North Carolina, while visiting Lindsay and Flip! :dance:

:w00t: I found the water drop... do I win anything??? :rofl: We should be seeing flowers in a week... if all goes well we will be in Colombia by then and when we come back to Wisconsin around the 20th of April the Robins should be here to greet us!!! I hope!!! :laughing: One of my wife's sons sent an extra computer so we should have it running soon... our home base has internet access but other than that it's "pay as you play" shops along the main roads! :nod: :hug:

Yes, it was unexpected :nod: as I found it on the way out of the Orchid Conservatory! :w00t: And, I think the whiteness would have been a bit boring otherwise :nod: Glad you like it!! :hug:
