Feeling Overwhelmed

The title is a true description. So much to do lately. Mostly boring paperwork stuff for several organizations. But, I did do something interesting yesterday.

I was entrusted with taking donations at work and picking out a potted plant for a coworker who lost her mother last week. I just couldn't find what I envisioned (and to buy from a florist was well above our budget) so I ended up buying the parts and making a potted arrangement. For those of you who know about orchid culture, don't worry. They are actually in separate pots tucked in among the others.

Since we live in central Florida she can grow this on her porch pretty much year around. I love cut flowers but sometimes a living plant is a nice reminder of the person you lost.

Love the arrangement and it is much nicer then florist flowers because you made it(-: I am sure your friend will enjoy it a lot. Sorry for her loss. It is always a difficult time and getting something as beautiful as your arrangement will make her day so much brighter(-:

We plan on planting some daffodil bulbs with our old dog Roxy in the next few weeks. I agree that a living reminder is a nice thing. Patrick
