All Wrapped Up

All Wrapped Up

Isn't funny, or maybe sad, how we get all wrapped up in our lives, our jobs, our hobbies, even pbase, so that
sometimes we don't have time for our friends or families.
I bought this orchid as a Christmas gift for a good friend, but it's still sitting in its clear wrapping on my front window.
Luckily I choose one with lots of buds so it will still be blooming whenever I get round to presenting it to her.
In mitigation, we were both very busy in the run-up to Christmas, then I disappeared off to the in-laws in Oldham and the weather has been pretty terrible with icy roads ever since.
This weekend, I am going to call to see her, present her with her gift, drink a cup of coffee and have a nice long chat.
Hopefully, unless, of course, something crops up in these busy 21st century lives of ours.

Nice that your 21st Century life still allows time for pictures and you still have time for your Pbase friends. This is such a lovely plant. Your friend is going to be very happy.

As long as you make time in the end, it still counts. And if the flowers all die you still have the proof here :-)
