Very nice arrangement. My orchids have some buds, hoping for Christmas Blooms too. My crazy cat is under the tree dismantling all the ornaments.

Hey, a brand new Christmas carol for us...The Holly and the Willow!

beauty shots Joy, parlour with holly looks so anti-kew! Pussy cat is beautiful...and I just went and glared at my do-nothing orchid.

Beautiful arrangement and I really must get things done soon.. Chtistmas is a coming. Willow looks very comfortable.

Merry Christmas and thank you for all your flattering remarks.I give all the credit for the orchids to my south window and Messenger which I buy on Ebay..Once you get the hang of it they are so easy to grow. I am so proud of my holly.The stuff they sell in the stores is dried out before we get it.I HAVE MINE IN OASIS this year.Joy
