Lovely gifts from your family, the OLive and Bay trees will make a great addition to your garden ;0) Ive just got back from the garden Center, spending my birthday and Mother's Day vouchers, bought a lovely large pot to replant my Palm in and some pansies and Primula to vamp up my pots in the garden, also had gifts of beautiful White Orchid and a Cerise Senetti from my Sons;0)

Your gifts sound lovely my orchid is flowering from last year which is nice. Hi Pixi glad my avatar is back to normal what did it look like??
