One Word Sunday: Symmetry

Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ this week, is ‘Symmetry’. Without having to look too hard, I found this photo taken when we stayed at The Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga a few years ago. They aren’t the most comfortable looking seats, but they certainly are symmetrical.

Here’s something that isn’t man-made and far more attractive. My orchids are doing really well at the moment. I have ten of them in flower and this one has had identical twins.

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it very difficult to focus on anything but this atrocious and abominable Russian invasion of Ukraine, but if you would like to join in Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’, just click the link.

  2. Your orchids are quite pretty.
    And I agree: hard to focus on anything but the war on Ukraine… I’m too much a “student” of History to not be overly concerned.
    Take care.

  3. The chairs are so unusual, but the orchids take the day. πŸ™‚
    The war in Ukraine is heartbreaking – I so wish someone would stop the evil Putin. 😒

  4. Dear Sylvia – you add joy to my day by sharing compassion, beauty, design and great conversations. Sending many hugs to way. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine.

  5. Your matched pair of orchids are just stunning!
    The chairs are so amazing!
    War has always been horrible. Human beings can’t
    seem to stop fighting amongst themselves.
    Flowers can being peace to soul.
    have a peaceful day dear friend, Eddie

  6. Your orchids are gorgeous. I find that I have to dive into nature either taking walks or posting about it in order to hang on to some sense of sanity… We sure live in difficult times. We must hang on as best we can… I find it best to limit my time watching the news. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ™πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

  7. Perfect examples, Sylvia. Although I prefer the flowers as well, the chairs are nice a bright if not really comfortable looking. πŸ™‚ I’m excited because an orchid plant that my husband got me last year is going to bloom again. I haven’t had much luck with that before. Ah, yes, the war. Doing my bit to provide some small amount of escapism and beauty on my blog while it goes on. 😦

  8. I keep going back to the news, and then wondering if I’m reading correct information, but all of it is horrendous. How do the perpetrators sleep at night? Lovely orchids, Ad.

  9. Your orchids are lovely and that top photo of the seats is very charming. I’m with you when it comes to the war. Take care, take it easy, Sylvia, take photos!
