New additions

I've been watching the grocery store for more orchids. Everything is Christmas right now... poinsettias, amaryllises, frost ferns... all lovely, but I really wanted to get a new orchid friend for Polly.

Finally, this week, they had a new crop in. These ones were a little bit smaller than Polly, but just as pretty. I had a very hard time choosing one (there was a gorgeous deep burgundy one that almost came home), but the spirit of the season must be upon me, because in the end, I went with pure white
Meet Persephone! Isn't she just beautiful?
And it looks like I brought her home just in time too.
Poor Polly has started to drop the rest of her flowers. But that's three full months of blooms - she deserves a rest.

Oh... and it looks like I couldn't resist those holiday arrangements either...
