    Default My late Xmas gift

    Hi all,
    This is a little crazy but on the pictures you can see my late Xmas gift which I got last Thursday from my sweet husband.
    In fact, I had the empty pot and that's is... I had something in my mind for my entrance hall of my house. My husband made the block of wood. I painted it into the darkest green (safari green) which is in my entrance hall on 1 wall and then I went to a Orchid greenhouse to buy 3 same plants.
    Behind the plants and flowers you can see 2 drawings of my kids. My dad made these drawings and I'm proud of it!
    Since a few days I got a completely "new" entrance hall!

    That is great. I love the drawings too. Thanks for sharing. I think the arrangement of the three plants in one container looks great!

    Cheers,
