Blooming Friday: A "White" Christmas of sorts...

Thursday was my birthday, and on Wednesday, LongSuffering Spouse arrived home with a big box full of packing, tissue paper and the like. "The weather is milder today so I could bring this safely home to you," he said. "It's a day early, but happy birthday!"

He chose this phalaenopsis because he knows I like white flowers, and also because it has a purple 'heart' of sorts. Awwwww...So along with being a green-flowered Christmas, it's now a White Christmas too...(and we actually do have a light dusting of snow outside, which is enough for me.
To all my readers near and far, to those travelling and those at home with loved ones, to my fellow garden bloggers, writers, gardeners and book lovers...a Happy Christmas to one and all. May you receive the desires of your heart this season, and may we all see peace on this earth of ours.

  2. Your kitty has a twin in the Falls, even down to the orange around the mouth. Plus, my cat loves being cuddled upside down like in your photo. You must have a cuddler too.
    Have a happy holiday!

  17. Belated birthday wishes Jodi and may you have a Happy New Year aswell. My 2nd child was due on Christmas Day - he waited till New Years Day to appear.

    That lovely orchid will most likely still be in flower on Valentine's Day.
