    Oh Kelly! Your thoughts of dating and relationships...

    I thought that the orchid should have been a Cattleya. and that it should not have been growing in dirt with the rose but on the windowsill stuck to the side or something. The video gets full points for creativity and romance, but only an F+ in horticultural realism as pig and elephant DNA just don't splice...

    I should probably knock before I go into my orchid room from now on...

    I think the orchid's actually in a pot in the window box...I'm not sure though...looks like it's in something though. Realism or not, I kind of wanted to see an orchid/rose hybrid. Hrmf.

    Very sweet. The orchid and rose seem to have a lovely relationship here. Thanks for sharing.

    umm, ok. What I'm wondering is, who grows grass in a window box like that? How would you mow it??
