The Orchid

I like to receive flowers, but let's be honest; they're kind of a waste of money. They're expensive and if you're lucky, you might get a weeks worth of enjoyment from them. I can think of a million things that I would rather do with the money that's wasted on flowers.

My husband is smart though. He knows how I feel about spending money on a gift that's going to stop giving in a few days time, so for Mother's Day he bought me a living plant instead! That's my guy! I really like orchids and have been tempted to buy one in the past, but they're awfully expensive. So this ended up being such a thoughtful present from my sweetheart!

Kevin made me take pictures of the plant because he was so impressed with his taste in flowers ;) It took me a while to get around to it, but I'm really glad that I did! I'm thinking about printing one of the pictures and hanging it in our house.

Here's where you come in: I need help making my choice! Take a look at the photos below and tell me which one is your favorite by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post. And if you would like to check out a black and white version of each image, head on over to my photography blog and do the same! Thanks for all your help!

#4 is my favorite. That would look awesome in a nice big canvas. All of them are beautiful though. And to have that in your home would be a sweet reminder of such a thoughtful gift. You'll have to post a picture when you have it printed out and hung. I'd love to see it.
