Flowers for Friday

It’s going to be crazy busy this weekend with all those stressed and delirious Christmas shoppers clogging up the roads and the stores. I hope all of you are prepared for whatever your holiday season involves, but in case you’re among the stressed and delirious I thought I’d give you a moment of calm with some wonderful flowers sent in by Nightjar. These are all flowers that have survived in her garden until December and I am amazed at the variety. I’m also a bit envious, but not too much because we do get to share the life-affirming beauty of flowers in winter. Thanks, Nightjar.

    I am completely in love with that rose ever since it first bloomed. It was given to us by a cousin, it had no flowers but it came with a photo of what the flower was supposed to look like (beige and pink stripes). I was so happy that the label was completely wrong, because this is so much better!

    The Slipper Orchids are my mom’s favourite flowers. And with those it’s not actually a matter of surviving until December, they bloomed a bit too early, I think, but they are winter flowers here.
