Blue Monday Orchids
Ater many tries we finally got to
Longwood Gardens yesterday.
This was the first time since
Mikey worked there this past
Summer and I was excited to take
him back and hear stories.
It was as I had hoped.
Everywhere we walked he had
a memory or a story to tell.
We looked for his favorite kitty,
Iggy, by the brickwalk...but there
were too many people around.
We walked through the Conservatory where
he had so many neat experiences.
It was as if he were greeting old friends
as he saw certain plants. Ones he had
deadheaded, cleaned, made cuttings of.
I do believe he is cut out for this line
of work. It makes him happy.
We finally saw "the bees".
While Mikey did his rotation in the
Mum Field these bees were being prepared
for this display. He had to "plug" plants
into bare spots on the bee frame.
We were very excited to
see how they turned out...
at 150 pounds each they are
hung and looking quite

Thanks Sally, for hosting Blue
Monday so faithfully each week!
I have to tell you that we were
at Goodwill last week and my
Eighteen Year Old son, Jonathan,
noticed a display in Blue and
suggested it would be good for
"That blue thing on your blog".
I found that just amazingly cute.
He really is paying attention...lol.
