Just about the time CF returns to Dallas, it is time to repot all the orchids we have in the house. I love doing it. A simple act that gives a sense of accomplishment the minute it is done. They are throughout our home – a flower we have had present in all the homes in which we have lived. In Laguna, we buy them buy the truckload at the local farmer’s market. In Dallas, we depend on Whole Foods. On this day I had 9 planters and 11 orchids to plant. The night before I stood in front of all the empty pots and thought to myself how lovely the house would be when he came home this week – and before I knew it I was done and they were placed around the house.
