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.
Tulips, hyacinths and daffodils in every color.
So pretty. So fragrant.
I ~wish~ you could smell the flowers.
My very talented girlfriend made a succulent wall planter filled with Sedums. Hens and Chicks Don’t you ~wish~ you had one?
Hanging orchids and air-plants.
Orchids in all colors.
My orchid hasn’t bloomed since last April. I ~wish~ I was better at orchids.
A resident frog in the greenhouse pond. Isn’t he the cutest?
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~
