Meems over at Hoe & Shovel has come up with a clever holiday blogging idea - The Twelve Days of Christmas in a Florida Garden. She's going to post "something" on her blog everyday for 12 days and she's encouraged her readers to join in.
It's definitely an ambitious undertaking at this time of year, but I think it's such a great idea that I'm willing to burn the midnight candle and join in.
A number of our orchids are coming in to bloom. This very yellow cattleya surpirsed me when I walked out on the back deck this past weekend. Orchids have a way of doing that - surprising you that is. I water them regularly and many times miss the emerging buds until the flowers pop open. Anyway, it was a very pleasant surprise.
Savor the moment
