Oh Jen, your flowers are just gorgeous, I so wish we could grow orchids here but of course our temperatures are too cold for them for part of the year. Such a beautiful sunset also!! xox

How wonderful to have Fuchsia is bloom during the winter; it seems strange to me seeing them blooming at the same time as the Jonquil. Your Orchids are beautiful! Have a great weekend.
Stay well

Hi Jan ~~ Loved all your flowers -
and the sunset. Glad you have had an easy week and a bit of sunshine helps. I have some maidenhair fern growing out of my Stag Fern. The orchids are lovely. Glad Richmond had a win at last - and to beat Collingwood. WOW. Carlton are playing a little better, but fade out in the last quarter.
If you let me know when you, Gwen and Pauline are coming, I will cook a dinner for you, so let me know.
Take care, Love, Merle

Hello !! I'm back !! What beautiful flowers you have!! The 7th pic of yours I have a plant like that at home. I thought it was a christmas cactus? The branch and blooms are the same as yours. Just lovely. Have a terrific warm blessed weekend!!

An easy week sounds like the best possible kind of week! :-)

You have all these beautiful flowers, in cold winter. {You said a pretty sunset on a cold winters night...} Amazing.

And I hope you try a little salt on your next melon. But your doc would probably not approve. Mine wouldn't if I told him. It's probably not good for Blood Pressure and etc., I suppose.

Hugs, Mari-Nanci

Beautiful flowers. I especially love the one of the zygos near the stag horn fern (or are they actually growing out of the fern?)
Your sunset is just gorgeous...

What a lovely sunset, Jen.

One of Fred's cattlyas is blooming at the moment. I must get a photo of's beautiful.

Your garden must be starting to look lovely. What a beautiful colour that zygo is (I couldn't think of that name when MM showed the photo of hers), it certainly makes the staghorn look different. Maybe that's its!

Hi Jeanette,
Thank you for your comment on my post. I really enjoyed looking at your flowers. How lovely they are. Ours are starting to come good as well, a bit more colour around the garden. I have white erlicheer daffodils in bloom, and hyacinths poking their noses out into the cold air. Lovely!

Those are stunning flowers. It must be rewarding to see them bloom like that.
