Found Them! The Perfect Posies

I think I have the right idea with a potted plant rather than cut flowers, something that Sigyn can enjoy for a long time.  The hibiscus I looked at was a step in the right direction, but lavender is not her favorite color.

Ah, orchids!  Lovely, and quite exotic!  The blooms last for months.  Sigyn would love an orchid plant!

This one is in a very pretty pot.

The tag says “Dendrobium.”  It’s very nice, but I’m not sure orange is any better than lavender.

Now this has promise!

Yellow is Sigyn’s second-favorite color.  And this one also has the pretty china pot.

It also has some buds, so it will stay in flower for a long time.

The label says Cattleya.

Idunn’s apples!  It is very heavy!

Okay, orchid, you are coming with me, but I am not carrying you all the way home.  I think magic is called for!  Luckily, levitation is child’s play for one of my skill.

What can I say?  If you’re levitating one plant, you might as well magic them all…

Happy Eater Bunny Day, sweetie!

Blossoms in the Boonies, Part II: A Colorful Conundrum

We are still at the park.  I was hoping for a chance at a nap, but it is not to be.  The human female is still talking plants with passersby and making an attempt to draw the pointed phlox that is everywhere.

I like the “pointy” part of the name, but sadly, it is not really menacing enough.

It is an indescribable shade of rather vivid purple-pink.   I am not certain that her limited palette of pencils is up to the task…

(Later, at home)

I am grudgingly impressed.  By mixing blue and red, she achieved a sort of purple.  It doesn’t match the plant, of course, but someone who knows the local flora would probably recognize what she was trying to convey.

Oh ho!  She has brought out a set of her own pencils.  Let us see if she has any better luck with them.

Still not exactly right, but Sigyn’s enthused!

My love, remind me to buy you a fine set of pencils of your own.
