A PINK Valentine Post

Today I am hooking up with Tootsietime for Fertilizer Friday and How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Be sure to go by and check out each one of their blogs!



I have several plants of Cymbidium Orchids that I inherited from my father. He use to love and nurture his plants. Before he past away, he gave me some plants and they have multiplied into some big beautiful plants. I keep them in my patio and during February and March they start to get huge buds on them. Here is one small plant that has already bloomed and I brought inside the house to admire it whenever I walk by!



Whenever I see one of these flowers it makes me think of my Dad and how much I miss him.


I love vintage planters. Here are some of my vintage Valentine Planters from the 40s and 50s. I love to display them during the Valentine Holiday.




Have a Happy Valentine Day. Here is a Valentine for YOU!
