Joey, the orchid is beautiful. I thought at first glance it was forsythia! Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Jodi, I copied that recipe. It sounds delicious and easy to prep.

Loved the photos.

How delightful! A re-blooming Cymbidium...Joey, you must have a green thumb! My orchids seem to be very reluctant...
Have a nice week-end!

lareine said...

these photos are lovely! wow! it must be nice to have your cymbidium give flowers again... especially on this cold winter:)... their warm color would surely cheer me up!... these flowers and your tarts, winter would seem like summer:)

joey said...

Hi Beckie! She's a beauty and going strong ... another shoot appeared ... yea! She spent all last summer vacationing outside and is now thanking me :)

Very easy, Marnie ... enjoy the tarts with the balmy weather and thanks.

Indeed I am delighted, Katarina, and another shoot shot up. Now, if only my slipper orchid would bloom!
Warm wishes for a wonderful weekend also :)

Welcome Lareine's always a joy when orchids rebloom ... some do, some don't. It's going to feel like summer tomorrow ... springing from 19-degress to 45, hopefully melting tons of snow!

Here also, Marmee ... and my sun porch is like Paradise!

I agree with Gail simple and delicious. How is it going with your cookbook Joey?
I'm sitting in my 'summerhouse' at the moment longing for warmer days, it is still a lot of snow here and -4 degrees C.
Your collage with the lovely blooms made my think of Forsythia and spring...

Have a nice weekend/ Tyra

Hey Joey,

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm visiting yours for the first time and just love it. I need to go now, so I can look around at all your goodies.

Your mosaic of the cymbidium blooms is heavenly! I always consider any rebloom on an orchid a true miracle. Congrats on yours!

Nice pics of the orchid. I can't get them to rebloom for me so they would indeed be a miracle if it happened under my care.

joey said...

Hi Tyra! Today was balmy and beautiful ... 45-degrees :) I imagine many weeks before all the snow melts ... My cookbook is somewhat gathered in seasons here on my blog, waiting to be assembled. In the meantime, I'm heavy into finishing the final editing of my novel, DIARY OF A HO-HUM HOUSEWIFE. Stay tuned ...

Thanks for visiting, Helen. I certainly enjoyed meeting you today also ... a gift!

Hi Cindy ... really no thanks to me since I'm somewhat hard on my orchids. Once they bloom, they're kicked outside in the summer for vacation ... 'orchid camp'. Some love it ... some don't :)

It is somewhat of a miracle to me also, Mr. Brown Thumb ... some make it and some don't. I embrace the gift!

Hi Anna! Enjoy ... and yes, I belive spring is coming, indeed it is. (Isn't it?)
