Two Surprises! Thank You Jen n' Jan!

I received two very nice surprises, one yesterday and one today! I love surprises. The first is an award from my bloggy buddie Janeen of Chachaneen. It is the highly coveted BFF Gold Card that never expires!
Thank you Janeen, it is a wonderful award!
Janeen's blog, Chachaneen is full of fun, family, food and fabulous field trips. It is always a pleasure to stop by and see what Janeen is up to, what she's cooking, eating, where she's going and what's happening with her and her family.
Janeen will be joining in on our Indian Summer picnic too! Can't wait to see what she conjures up for the party.
This award comes with a request to pass this along! I'll be doing that as soon as I stop going hmmmmm, let's seeeeeeee ahmmmm whooooooooooo doooo I give itttttt toooooo. I'll be working on this and get back with ya'll soon!
Surprise #2 arrived on my doorstep this morning! It is from my daughter Jennifer who lives in San Francisco. She sent 2 beautiful orchids from Hawaii. ALOHA new orchids.
The one of the left of the picture is a hybrid. Its a cross of Ascocentrum x Vanda. and has several more of the beautiful lavender flowers in the I'll be bloomin' in a minute mode. Lovely! The other is a Doritus. It looks very much like a phaleanopsis, but apparently has different chromosomes. The small white flowers are brightened at the edges with yellow dots, and according to Jennifer it may have a lemony scent. I think it's in a recovery mode from the long trip and I don't detect a scent just yet, but I'll report back on that.
Gotta rush off now - it's my annual mammio grammio day. I'm sure that's the correct medical term for it. If you haven't had one lately - get one!

Those are two very nice surprises. I hear there's no limit on that BFF Gold card, so I'll meet you in front of Tiffany's or Cartiers, agreed?!?!
