HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
This post is a flowery sort. Last Monday I had our garden club circle here for a morning meeting. A young gal who owns a florist shop in downtown Mt. Dora was giving us a demonstration on flower arranging. It was to start at 10 and she would be here at 9.30. Around 10 I heard she was on her way. Around 10.30 I had a call that she was on her way but had run out of gas and had to walk to a gas station. I wondered if we would ever get going. Well she finally arrived and went ahead with the program. She did a lovely small arangement with yellow mums that you could buy as a little pick me up gift for a friend at $8.00. Very reasonable and a good idea to be able to get something that inexpensive. Second she made a large arrangement and it was very pretty. When our meeting time was almost over we started the general meeting and had yet to serve coffee and goodies. Turned ot be a little lunch for us. All was well in the long run. No one reads this from my neighbours or clubs otherwise I wouldn't have mentioned the lateness above but my heavens who runs out of gas on their way to an appt.
I had bought flowers to put around the house and I made a little grouping for the kitchen table in small bottles and vases and filled a kitchen jug with the balance of flowers. It is still looking good a week later. I took a few pictures also of the pansy orchid which is still going strong and the terrarium with its orchids.
I should have mentioned that we put our names into a dish and they drew 2 names. The little one went to one of the gals and the other larger arrangement went to Moi.
Surprise. I think they rigged it so I would get it.
I wish you all a very Happy Valentines Day. FredaB
