The orchid must be the most exquisite flower around. They come in such amazing colours and each has their own personalities. They have this somewhat kind of strength to them. The strongest person I ever knew was my late mother, no one I know would be able to take an orchid bud, plant it and regrow them like she did. Even though she may not be physically around anymore the orchids still are, and they constantly remind me always of her strength and how very beautiful she was.
