    True, we are going to a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico in early January, my mom will be here visiting from France and she has never been to the Caribbean, so we're bringing her along. Can't wait!

    TPBM has a unique Holiday family tradition he/she'd like to share.

    Well let's try to get this poor thing moving again ..........

    I would have to say 'False" -- can't think of any truly "unique" holiday traditions in my family. Though I did receive -- what I thought -- was a really awesome ornament from my sis. Pic is at the end of the post in case anyone would like to see it.

    TPBM likes to take advantage of the cold weather to do some baking. Which reminds me ... I have to go check and see if my dough has risen enough.........



    *Note: I find it amazing that this was painted on the INSIDE. The man/woman who painted it must have incredibly steady hands.

    That would be false, I do enjoy baking, but I don't limit it to cold weather. I did however take advantage of the cold snowy weather recently to go backpacking, by myself in the Allegheny National Forest. I only wish I had crampons on my boots to keep from slipping so much, otherwise it was a blast.
    TPBM has ten grandchildren.

    TPBM is a species snob and wouldn't grow a hybrid if it was given to them

    awww, I think it's so funny t have this idea of a species snob, and I wanna be a species snob but there are so many pretty hybrids too that, well, maybe I'm just a theory / wannabe species snob. I am a member of an orchid society that is geared purely to the growing and showing of species orchids.

    TPBM has been told today to do something else other than orchid related stuff (i just can't bear to wash the dishes at the moment... maybe after i finish this drink

    True? I think. LOL. I just closed three productions tonight. It has been quite a week. I am worn out and look like the walking dead. hehe.. I am still smiling though. All three shows played to full houses each night. SO, now tomorrow (today, but I have not been to bed just yet...) I get to spend some time with my orchids and see if anything is blooming.

    Cheers,
    BD

    TPBM has something very orange in bloom at the moment and would like to share a photo of it in this huge thread.

    False...and true! I love orange orchid flowers and wish I had one in bloom right now, but do not. (But if I did, I definitely would share a photo of it.)

    Cheers,
    Rob

    TPBM is thinking of trying a new group of orchids to him or her, possibly at the expense of some s/he is currently growing.

    TPBM looked at an orchid bloom today and decided that the orchid is their Valentine

    LOL, yes!

    It's pathetic when the only valentine you get is from your mother! The best my cats could offer was some projectile vomit on good furniture.

    TPBM is sick of snow and is seriously contemplating a tropical vacation!

    True: I am so sick of this winter. I discovered today that a chunk of ice coming off the roof damaged the siding. I have another sheet threatening my greenhouse window in my kitchen. Earlier today, we were talking about next Feb school break in Mexico.
    (Julie...a happy Valentine's Day from me)
