Valentine's Day Orchids

What is the most commonly gifted gift plant on Valentine's Day? That's easy, orchids! I remember a time, not so long ago, when orchid plants were mysterious and incredibly exquisite. It is not the orchid that is changing (although you can find orchids at your local florist), it is me. Orchids continue to intrigue people, especially those that like high style and enjoy an exquisite gift. So I ponder, why are orchids the most popular gift plant or what is it about orchids that make them so exquisite. Ok, I'll write about that!

In case you don't know, orchid plants are higher level plants that have existed way back since the dinosaurs. Many are air plants that live off the air you and I breathe to survive.


This makes them special plants indeed. Since orchids are not extinct and have survived for millennium, they have become highly evolved. Many advances in orchid breeding and growing have created an abundant supply of orchid plants such as phalaenopsis, cattleya, oncidium alliance and the new intergeneric orchids from Hawaii.

Your first look at an orchid sparks intrigue and you are beckoned by the orchid flower to take a closer look. You may find the orchid is not fragrant. Most orchids do not have a scent, but many are fragrant! Now you know why orchid plants are so popular.
Next, orchid plant gifts are very exquisite. I guess 'exquisite' is the best word to describe a gift orchid. Imagine the look on their face, when they open the box and inside find a perfectly wrapped orchid. Barring the orchid box is not smashed by FedEx, USPS, or UPS - the recipient receives a living, blooming orchid plant with instructions on how to care for it. With proper care, many orchids can last a lifetime.

You smile at the beautiful blooms and think, what kind of plant is this? You discover it's an orchid and your big smile widens. All your worries disappear as you ponder how special you are to be the recipient of a gift orchid on Valentine's Day.

Hi,

I'm just browsing sites for the children of Haiti.

I'm here for a non-profit organization that is dedicated to
building an oppurunity for the kids in haiti. If anyone here wants to give money then do so here:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They give children in Haiti a positive learning environment.

And yes, they're legitimate.

It would be great if you could help

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
