Speaking of colorful, I went to Orchid Quest today, which is an orchid show/convention/thing. It apparently occurs once a year, but this was the first time I'd even heard of it. There were lots of pretty flowers (but I didn't bring my camera, pity). I even bought one!
It's just a baby seedling, and it should grow into a miniature moth orchid, if that means anything to anyone. (It almost means something to me...) Assuming I don't kill it before it gets there, of course. I don't have a great track record with plants--not anymore.
See, I had a lot of plants in college, but I left half on an open window sill one night when we had frost. Then I ended up locking the remaining ones in my black car in the full sun for a day--uh...whoops. The plants I had left after that have suffered the wrath of housepets and the lack of sun in my parents house, leaving my with only the most durable spider plant in the world, a very tenacious wandering Jew, and a rather nervous fern. We'll see how long the orchid lasts.
