My everblooming orchids...

...aren't they gorgeous! Everytime i came in from work or comes down in the morning i can't resist staring at them ...can't believe they've been blooming for so long. Below picture are sitting by our kitchen window. These big potted one in the living room. Oh, i love them so much!! Once again, everyone's home so we decided to go out for lunch...the only time we are all together otherwise one always missing during meal time due to work schedule. Looks delicious on the picture and sure they are. Today was, The annual catamaran race around Texel (“Rondje Texel”)...took these pictures from the dyke here nearby our house. These were the first to pass through after they started from "De Koog" at 9am and took these pics around 11am. I never been to the starting point of the race, so i don't have any idea how it looks like with so many of those Catamarans. Sure they are lucky the weather was great for them. The last couple of days was no wind at all and if it was still no wind today, was probably move for the next day or cancelled. It did happened a few years back and if it strong winds it will be cancelled as well. Today was really perfect for them. One of my lunch outings this week with friends. With work, we don't see each other much so if we get the chance we do like to meet up and have lunch or drinks somewhere. No stitching done at all for this week... Happy weekend to all.

Wonderful orchids indeed. My mother also had one orchid plant that was blooming on and off for more than five years. Whenever we thought that it was dying a new bloom appeared. But my mom had a green thumb.
Great pictures!
