Gifts from garden friends

Gardeners love to share. Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to see a fellow blogger WC Gardener. She gave me some amazing plants. Foxtail fern Forsythia
Night blooming Cereus (http://www.desertusa.com/mag99/july/papr/nbcereus.html), Night blooming cactus, English Dogwood, and 3 different orchids. I know that one of them is a Nun's Orchid (http://grumpygardener.southernliving.com/grumpy_gardener/2009/03/hey-sister-get.html). I have never grown orchids, so I am excited about them.
I also managed to get away with a bunch of fresh collards...The Hunter loves them...as do I!

Wow, what a great friend! The best is when someone needs to get rid of something and it's something you need - my friend Lynn pulled up enough monkey grass from her yard to edge at least 100 feet of beds in my yard. This reminds me, I need to pot up some camellia babies for friends.
Your blog is just great. Wonderful how much you update it! I'll update mine tonight!
