    Default Bereft of my orchid family for 4 months!!!

    No photo, I'm afraid, of my desolate grow area. We just packed every single one of them, and the bonsais as well, off to our favorite nursery where I think they will miss us not at all!

    Setting off for Maine early tomorrow morning, ETA sometime Sunday. Although this an annual tradition for us, this year is truly special: we'll be celebrating my parents' 50th anniversary (yikes). They enjoyed about 14 months of couple time just after they were married before I showed up, poor souls. I don't think my mom has recovered from the trauma yet.

    I'll post photos of the trip as soon as I have some worth viewing.

    A more than worthy reason to part from your orchid family I wish you a good journey and many congratulations to your parents for their golden jubilee.

    A whole month??? *OW*

    I went without mine for two weeks; that was bad enough. Okay, so I DID take two compots with me. They were too little to leave behind. Orchids--don't leave home without them!

    Definitely kudos to your parents for having made it this far. In a country where one half of all marriages fail, they're a shining star of hope.

    Great tradition Maura. Say hello and convey our congratulations to your parents from my wife and I (we celebrated our 50 anniversary last year). Stay safe both you and Philip and enjoy yourselves.

    Safe travels, happy party with your parent, if you need a restoring cup of tea after passing through Boston let me know I'm a mile east of I93 and a mile west of Route 1, but you already know that. In the meantime I'll be sending you and your orchids good thoughts from atop my hill. - martha
