Flowers

Here is a photo of some beautiful flowers that line our front sidewalk. (I'm ashamed to say I have no idea what kind they are, but I try to imagine that I live in Hawaii every time I look at them!) Our wonderful gardener that has worked at this house for over 15 years keeps the gardens looking spectacular through the blistering sun & torrential rains. I can only dream of having a yard this beautiful in Texas. (Or of having a gardener come tend to our Texas lawn twice a week!)


Sam has recently surprised me with a dozen fresh Baguio roses. The first time he brought them to me, we were meeting for dinner at a new restaurant & the staff assumed it was our anniversary. I told Sam how sad that they think I would head to our anniversary dinner in jeans with my hair pulled up in a ponytail and not a stitch of makeup on! But, we didn't correct them...


The second time he brought home a dozen white roses, but I didn't take a picture before they met their trash can grave. They were beautiful though! I wonder what color I'll get next...

Your gorgeous flowers outside are Orchids! I was just noticing them the other day myself. They are such temperamental flowers, and they are very hard to keep up. They are also VERY expensive to buy in the states. I use to work for a property management company, and we would always have one Orchid in our office. They are truly beautiful!
