Valentine’s Day Flowers

This Valentine’s day I thought I would try to be creative and suprise my boyfriend. I found this pretty purple orchid as his main gift. Unlike me he has the patience to care and keep orchids alive.

I also started to grow for him a mix of sunflowers. A few weeks before Valentine’s day I started to grow Mammoth sunflowers. If all goes well we should have eight feet tall giant yellow sunflowers in a few months. I also started four smaller hybrid sunflowers. They will be slightly smaller and will be different colors.


Despite all my efforts I think I got the biggest surprise. First I received pretty white tulips which are my favorite flower. But to match the white flowers I received a Mac mini. It’s so cute and shiny and white. It’s replacing a sad, tired, old Dell laptop.

    I must say, the Mac Mini is my favorite pic! So cute!
    But I do love orchids. 🙂

    What thoughtful presents for both of you! I grew Mammoth sunflowers last year and loved them. They grew taller than my garage.

    Your blog is very attractive. I like the idea of a Heart Art show too. I have always loved hearts. And …I love sunflowers too. Welcome to botanical and you have so much to offer here.
