Flower Friday: March

Today we are finally able to join Rosy SassyPants for....

 Our daffodills started popping thru the pine straw the week after February Flower Friday
This is our first one to have a bud
 then to burst open with glorious yellow others are popping thru all over the as of February 18.

We were worried about our lovely red Camellia due to the very very cold 10 days we had in January.but ooooh Cammie the Camellia didn't let us down.  
This is the view we have coming out of the front door
 and there are just as many ravishingly red blooms on the front.

Jewel Orchid from Gigi Google to show you the beautiful leaves

I've always wanted an orchid..actually had one years ago that I "loved to death".
February 24, 2018 I saw this Jewel Orchid at Logan's Trading Company.
I didn't write the following paragraph but it is exactly what happened to me.

Jewel Orchid Care

This is a story of the little jewel orchid that grew up to be a champion. I first saw my little Ludisia Discolor on the out of bloom table at a local floral nursery. It was after the holidays, after the normal blooming season for Ludisia here in the Mid Atlantic area and the nursery was clearing out the extra orchid stock that had not sold.Velvet-soft burgundy striped leaves caught my attention out of the corner of my eye and I walked over to have a look.
Toxicity: Non-Toxic to Dogs, Non-Toxic to Cats, Non-Toxic to Horses

Toxic Principles: Non-toxic
Here are a few photos of our Jewel Orchid with 2 bloom stalks.
One stalk is blooming the other isn't far behind.

OMCs is mom Happy she says it looks just like an orchid  (MOL I reminded her it was an ORCHID
Look at all the blooms about to open

Sissy and BIL will be arriving today at about 3:30 pm.  We'll be off line once they arrive but 
back bright and early on Saturday


Friends, It is I, Madison D. Cat, with a grand announcement....

I would like to invite you to pawticipate in a ROAD TRIP hop to 
celebrate my 16 birthday.   I will be 16, on Sunday, March 11th.  

Please feel free to snag this photo to use you can make it smaller or larger.

here is a slightly smaller  photo

We thought it would be fun to have all my friends tell about learning to drive: if your parents taught you, if you went to driver's ed and the fun or not so fun things that might have happened.  Another idea would be to 
tell about a road trip that stands out in your mind as memorable, good or bad or funny.
  Doesn't have to be long.
We would love to have you all join us to celebrate my 16th.
Mama of Mayor Arty, Jakey and Rosy SassyPants will set up a blog hop for us.
The hop will be set up and ready for you to pre-post on March 1, 2018.  You may reach it by

  1. wow that are a lot flowers for march... we love that your camellia is such a trooper... our two trees are more wimps, they lost the battle with jack frost and all what we have are greasy wet brown buds we have to remove from the ground now....

  2. Lovely to see the Spring flowers. Still waiting here...
    Have a great weekend with Sissy and BIL.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail has been v. busy at work this week and I'm hoping she'll get organised for the Road Trip.

  3. We love the flowers,Madi...and you <3 and we can't wait to find them in our garden too, but I guess we have to wait a little longer...sigh... Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

  4. Beautiful flowers! Yes, Spring is just about here. Our mom wants to know if you have problems attracting stingy bugs with them ? Our first spring here, we had SO MANY due to the house high bushes out front, that also flowered. Wasps, hornets and bees congested the front porch daily. Blessedly, the owner removed both last fall, prior to the hideous roof replacement.

  5. Mom can't wait to see daffies blooming here and your camellia is gorgeous! Do you think mom can get an orchid to bloom? She might NEED to try that next *wink wink*

    Now I got flower envy! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. A gorgeous Flower Friday! You have happy daffodils and that is a smile maker! Happy your Cammie survived the cold... love the color! We have a riot of Periwinkle but it is too early for it now. Have a most wonderful time with Sissy and BIL... I know your Mom and Dad are so excited to see them!

  8. Goodness, just look at all those wonderful flowers. They are just so pretty.We love the periwinkle. You all have a great birthday. Big week end for you Madi.

    Have FUN with Sissy and BIL, Mom and Dad.
    Happy, Happy Birthday to you Madi.
    Happy weekend.

  11. We love daffodils....they make Mom smile. The only plants Mom does well with is Orchid plants because they thrive on neglect.

    Raz wanted to remind you that the Scouts Birthday party is on Sunday. The theme is dinosaurs.

  12. You are so lucky to have all those flowers. We are getting more snow today so it will be quite a while before anything starts popping out of the ground.

  13. Momma is starting to think that we need to plant some flowers at our new house! There's lots of greenery, but no COLOR!

  14. Wow! You have flowers! Hooray! We have nothing but snow!

  15. Am all set for your birf-day, Madi! Vroom, vroom! We have oceans of periwinkles...which will be up in a month or so. I love the petal colors, and the dark green leaves are pretty all warm-weather long!

  16. WOW!! We thin you have more flowers than we do after our cold snap! Mama just loves your Cammies...and we really like your Jewel Orchid!
    Rosy, Arty & Jakey

  17. Oh wow, look at all the beautiful blooms. Our hyacinth bulbs are poking through the ground but nowhere near ready to show us any blooms. Mom has one orchid left, just a little one, but it is starting to send out a shoot that will have flowers. This morning she tossed a very sick looking African violet - time for her to make a trip to a GOOD nursery:) Mom is in love with your Camellia.

  23. Oh my goodness - it's SPRING time there! Look at your daffies and Cammellias, and periwinkle. Wow! And I love your orchid.
