My in-laws went to Longwood Gardens earlier this week, and they brought home some gorgeous orchids, and I was the lucky recipient of this gorgeous yellow orchid:
And this absolutely beautiful magenta orchid:
My friends laughed at me when I asked whether orchids were poisonous to cats (they aren't) - but you see, we have an intrepid hunter in this house. Nothing is safe - Piper's little stuffies, hair scrunchies, yarn...
"Mama, they look so pretty! And they move in the wind!"
"I will smell them a little bit. They smell so pretty!"
"Why am I licking my lips? No reason..."
"Hey big brother, come here! Check out these things! Mama calls them 'ORKIDS.'"
"Come on! You have to smell these things!"
Hermione is going to even lessen the survival rate of any plant brought into this house. My Christmas cactus has teeth marks in it. I don't even get why these are things she would want to bite!
