The summer is passing quickly and it will soon be time for my son and I to head back to school. He is entering the 7th grade in middle school and I'm returning to part time work in the schools. I seem to be a slow reader lately. I have many wonderful books to read although I haven't had as much time to read and write my reviews. I'd love to go on a reading vacation and sit in a hammock somewhere beautiful and relax and read with a nice cold drink at my side and no responsibilities. Wishful thinking, I know...that is not in the cards for me at this time. Someday...a girl can dream.
I received an orchid as a gift this summer and have fallen in love with these beautiful flowers. I am not the most talented at gardening and I don't have a green thumb. I am determined that my orchid will thrive and survive. It's a beautiful pink/purple Just Add Ice Orchid. Yes, the name says it all, you feed your orchid once a week with three ice cubes. I've heard that you need to feed your orchid as well and I'll have to figure that out. The Just Add Ice Orchids are gorgeous orchids grown by a local grower and are available across the US. Their website has a wealth of information and they can be found on Facebook as well. They featured my orchid picture that I posted on Facebook in a closeup and sent it out on twitter. I wrote about it on my Facebook wall and got so many comments that my husband felt like we had added a new member to the family. It brightens my day as I have it sitting by my kitchen window. Here are some pictures:
Is anyone else a fan of orchids?
