Call the Midwife is back!

Yes!  Jenny, Chummy, Trixie ,Cynthia
& the Sisters are back!
I love this show and especially Chummy.
There was plenty of Chummy in the story last night.

It was followed by Mr. Selfridge which I also enjoy.
When we visited London last spring, we walked into Selfridges.
Of course it's very modern now, but when I turned 
around, there was the old entrance facade preserved.

Any Midwife or Selfridge fans out there?

I'm finally back to blogging and painting after
a too long hiatus.
We're back from a warm sunny trip.
Laundry is caught up, housekeeping is caught up,
appointments have been made and kept.
Snow is on the way tonight.

My daughter and I did our annual Philadelphia Flower Show/
Longwood Gardens Orchid Show day today.
Such a joy to look at all those gorgeous flowers!
The image above is of Longwood's hanging orchids.
Just stunning!

And to brighten your winter day,
a view of the conservatory...
all dressed up for Spring.
