Well it turns out I need a whole lot more time to get organized than just a week.

I bet you knew that all along.

I lasted all of three days before I couldn't help it anymore and I HAD to dye some yarn. I also had to do some silk scarf dyeing for a couple of shops in the area which need them for Mother's Day.

Just darting around receiving more shipments of yarn for dyeing, or sitting and spinning, or knitting here and there to get at least one WIP done, well all of that doesn't give you a single word to read on here.

So I am sitting myself down to blog -- how about that orchid show we went to last week? I took about 300 bear with me while I sift and just give you a small portion of that gorgeousness. I'm going to tell you right away that by the end of the day, after we had not only seen the orchids but also taken a tour of the gardens, we became members of the New York Botanical Gardens, and are looking forward to going back many more times this year.

OK - here goes, get lost in the pictures!
