I hope that everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day weekend. I was blessed with lots of love from my kids and husband and wanted to share some pics of some fresh flowers I received.
Look at these beautiful pink lilies! I love how great they smell. They remind me of a wedding that I was in that had these in the bridesmaid bouquets.
I would love to have some like this to plant outside one day!
I placed them on the coffee table where I could enjoy them all the time. There are several more buds yet to open.
As I was shopping for my own mother and MIL, I spotted this orchid. I've never had a live orchid before. I decided to grab it and see if they were as easy to grow as the tag said they were. Any suggestions about keeping orchids alive?
I placed it on my painted secretary. Look at how magnificent the color is! You can't get that with a faux orchid.
I did not edit this picture at all. Now you see why I just HAD to have it! It came with growing directions that said to make sure the bark is dried out completely between watering's. It also said to keep out of direct sunlight. I'll keep you posted as to how it's doing.
I've really enjoyed having fresh flowers in the house! Mine are usually not real. I really wish I could buy lilacs to plant outside, but sadly they do not do well in GA. It is too hot. So, looks like I'll have to buy some fake ones. I see them throughout blog land and am jealous of all of you that can grow them in your own yard! I'll just keep drooling over your pics that you post. Ha!
Thanks for stopping by!
