No Presents.

What to get for our friends’ Wedding Aniversery, in 2015 (No presents)?

We were in a Hypermarket in France and I saw a display of lovely mini Phalaenopsis. I would love this as a gift, so put it in the trolley.

Under 5 euros. Oh! That’s a bit stingy, so put a second in the trolley.

They really didn’t want any presents so……kept them myself.

Well they are not very good with plants!

This is them today in March 2016, after potting on.


And we gave them a bottle of Champagne.
Champagne goes to my head, not my heart!!

Amy, I think they would actually prefer the bubbly to the Orchids. Same friends, to whom (the wife) I gave the white Gaura, after I had taken some cuttings. Just in case she killed it, that's my excuse.
Thanks Linda, rather difficult to photograph though.

You've made some dandy selections. I would have happily put a bottle in the trolley as well :)

Thank you, fellow gardeners. I am excused then, but don't tell them! Believe me I really was going to give the Phalaenopsis to them, because our bungalow does not remain at a constant temperature when we are away in the winter and the temperature is too cold in the conservatory.

The orchids are beautiful and how well they have done in your care. Wise decision to keep them!!
Champagne was a great idea!
