Today I received an orchid from each of my daughters. Each different, each special - just like my girls! I have wanted an orchid for such a long time. Can you imagine my surprise when they each walked in carrying one! Thank you, my sweet girls.
The first to arrive was Polly with a lovely plant with small blooms of such an unusual color. It has shades of orange, pink, and purple. I don't ever recall seeing one of this variety. It does look nice with the colors of the room. I've never had an orchid plant before and I hope I can give it the care it needs to stay healthy and bloom for a long time.
The next to arrive was my elder daughter, Peggy, with what we used to call a "butterfly" orchid. It was just like the one I wore the first time I when to a dance with my future husband. It was so pretty that he gave me another, the second dance we went to. That makes it pretty special.
