I actually have more buds on my orchid and I think they are bigger don't you? I've had lots of advice mostly PATIENCE!! Oh good grief please send me some!! I have absolutely NONE!! You can't see in the picture but the ends are a darker color. I wish I could remember the color but we will just have to wait. Debbie thought I should have a contest as to what color it will be. She said it would be white with yellow centers. I had a dark pink, light pink, white with yellow center and a lady slipper. That is the only one I remember the name of. I think this was a pink one, well no on second thought maybe it was the white one. I hope we find out soon.
This one actually has new leaves and doesn't look too bad. I have one more that looks kind of sick so I didn't take a picture of it.
I cooked all weekend. Don't know what possessed me but I couldn't leave my kitchen. I made a pumpkin cake that is just OK. The one I usually bake is a big cake so I don't like making it unless I know someone will be around to eat it all. I'll have to post the recipe because it is the best. I got it from Molly at Orangette a few years ago.
This one came from Martha. I changed the icing a little by making a cream cheese icing with honey. Hers was a little different.
I also made Theresa's chocolate cookies. So easy and so good. I have seen recipes using cake mixes but never tried one until now. I will definitely make these again. I told her I was going to post her cookies and to expect extra company. I did add nuts too!!
