More orchids, but these are buds.


I was wandering around this morning, feeling as though I was in a rut. When I did the Colden 500 day project I hadn't felt that way, and I was wondering why.


Then it came to me: seasons. In Western New York the seasons are strongly differentiated. Even though I had a much smaller working area there, I could count on having each space or view I had change markedly, sometimes over a week or two.


Here, that doesn't really happen. Sure, the gardenias aren't in bloom and then they are. The sunrise moves around a bit. Plants grow and change their shapes. It's raining or it's not raining. Wet spell or dry spell.


But none of these changes are as extreme as what I had.


So that's the answer.
