This were the beauties he produced for valentines this year... Orchidea is a huge hit here... Those with a green thumb showcase a true tropical forest on their windowsills... They are beautiful, I guess they have the longest living blooms and aren't high-maintanace... Not necessary to tell you I was happy with the display of trust it represented... "Hub believes I can keep them alive!"
But then he came with the reasoning that got me orchidee instead of cut blooms: "you know, every time you have to throw away the flowers I give you it seems you want to keep them longer... I thought I could as well give you a potted plant so that you would have the excuse to keep it... besides, this one will last at least two months in flower..."
Rough translation? - I know plants here are never in flower twice, so let me get them to display the colours for the longest time possible... - so much for trust, right?
Then my i-laws presented me with those flowers from the pic when we came back... the sweetest mother-in-law ever remembered the flowers and the father my love for plants (he is the green thumb of the family, if my plants are standing on the edge I take them to his house and the go back to life - AMAZING!)... but willing as I am to keep them alive, as you can see, I am not doing a great job...
