Wordless Wednesday–Orchids for the Holidays

Christmas Orchid

You know I like orchids for holiday decorating. It seems the orchid sellers have finally gotten on the commercial bandwagon.

Now this really wasn’t what I had in mind for orchid decorating for the holidays. But if you recall my post at Thanksgiving when I had that gorgeous peachy colored phalaenopsis shown with the crotons and the kalanchoe, I said that I had been seeking a white orchid. Well, here it is.

Since I’m lecturing in 5 days I figured I’d better not disturb this one too much. I can take the “peppermint stripe” candy cane thing out later.

But wouldn’t this have been so much nicer with something a little less “candy cane?”

Oh well–if we all liked the same thing…..

    This time of year one can get by with more cutesy stuff than usual, but I agree the orchid is so attractive it doesn’t need a thing.

    We all have our favorite decorations that others might question, don’t we? That’s probably true in the garden too, whether it comes to garden ornaments or even our choice of plants!

    I only got this for “demonstration purposes” as I think I said. My lecture is on Monday and then the candy cane goes. I’m sure I can repurpose it somewhere and it will be fine. But it’s really too much with this orchid!

    Thanks for reading and enjoy the holidays!

    I just love orchids! They are classy no matter what they are situated with! 🙂

    Thanks! That seems to be the consensus. Perhaps I’m overly horrified by the candy cane. But clearly I love orchids too.

    Thanks for reading and commenting.
