Greenhouse Flower Show

My girlfriend works at a greenhouse.  They were having their Springtime Flower Show so I went to spend some time with her.  She gave me the tour.

The theme this year was “Birds in the backyard”.  I ~wish~ my backyard looked like this!

I ~wish~ I had that potting table, exactly like it is displayed, surrounded by all these beautiful shrubs and flowers.

My very talented girlfriend made a succulent wall planter filled with Sedums.  Hens and Chicks  Don’t you ~wish~ you had one?

My orchid hasn’t bloomed since last April.  I ~wish~ I was better at orchids.

Amaryllis.  I’ve never seen one striped like this before.  I love it.  I tried to force my amaryllis this year and all I got were leaves.  No flower.  I ~wish~ I was better at amaryllis too.

After the show we went to my friends house for lunch.  I had a cold so she gave me  homemade chicken soup and tea with the best honey I ever tasted in my life.  Friends take care of each other.  ~smile~
