    Talking !!!WARNING - SILLY NON_ORCHID POST!!!

    Hey! It's LJA's birthday, AND summer solstice, AND International Cat Week, and Cuckoo Warning Day (what the heck?? Tim-bo is that from the land of OZ?), and Saturday (the 24th) is International Space Ship Day!!!

    Soooo - - Here's a chance for some general silliness about that eclectic collection of celebrations... put them together and what do you get??

    A druid priest cat wearing a birthday hat, shouting Cuckoo warnings from a flying saucer??? (Gort, Klatu Barata Nicto!)

    Come on you creative types - what's your mental picture???

    Ok...now this is gonna kill me...

    To mark today's somewhat confused, but joyous occassion(s), Diane has sent me a gift. I was quite stunned as I carefully unpacked...

    Paph. philippinense 'Angel Wings' HCC/AOS x 'Easter Parade' HCC/AOS!

    She's a beaut, with 5 big growths and...she's in bud! (The phil, not Diane.)

    So, what, you're asking yourself, is gonna kill me?

    ...now I have to be nice to her. (Diane, not the phil.)

    Thank You, Diane!
    and I'll be the cheese if you want.

    Julie

    Doesn't that mean the same as summer solstice? (with a saxon twist?)

    Default Litha

    Litha is the Wiccan celebration of the summer solstice. A time for fertility, healing and divination. Mother Earth is at her prime, and Father Sun is high in the sky.
