Back with some lovely orchid pictures.  I visited an open house at an orchid wholesale company.  It was amazing.  I've loved orchids all my life.  Each one so unique.

A Chicago Autumn


Christmas in Chicago

A favorite childhood memory is Chicago at Christmas time.  My Mother would take us to the city to view the animated windows filled with trains, gifts and Christmas lights.  Every year Marshall Field's would outdo last years windows.  There was always a visit to Santa Clause and shopping for that Christmas Dress.  Things in the windows are not as ornate now that Macy's bought the store, but they have kept that spirit of Field's alive in the huge Clock.  Somethings shouldn't be changed.

Enjoy these Christmas scenes  2012 and Happy Holidays to you.
