Bouquet Bomb Bonus

My mister bouquet bombed me with orchids yesterday (see previous post).  One of the coolest things about them is that they are shipped directly from a real orchid farm in Hawaii and they come wrapped in genuine Hawaiian newspaper.  No local section this time- bummer!  Amazing true fact:  Orchids are incredibly tough.  Some years ago, my mister ordered some for Valentine's Day.  They were delayed for a full week because of a blizzard.  I was sure the contents would look like rotten salad by the time they arrived but they were gorgeous and lasted a very long time!

I cannot believe how beautiful the orchids are. I bought one from the super market. It bloomed. And rebloomed, much to my surprise. And now it looks like it might bloom again. Hoping so. I'll take a picture.

Awwwe, the standard 40 day Anniversary gift is Orchids, I see. I'm so behind the times!

Did not know that, CG- apparently we're ahead of the times! Ann, nice. Every time we buy one it craps out. I think they hate the wood stove here- way too dry.
