I guess it's time to update my profile picture. My sister recently got married and I was her matron of honour. Such a happy day. :)

White orchids were my Nanay’s favourite flowers. I remember she had several plants hanging on tree branches outside our house. She would look forward to them blooming, usually in time for the year-end ceremonies at school. The flowers would be fashioned into corsages for us to wear.

Nanay had a green thumb for sure, maybe even two. I wish I inherited her gardening skill but I didn’t. Whereas she could nurse plants back to health, I could kill them just by looking at them. Yes, I’m that bad.

We still try to fill the house with plants despite my abysmal record. The ones we have right now seem to be defying the odds. So imagine my delight when I noticed a few buds on one of the orchid plants a few weeks ago. I watched the buds change and grow every day. It is now in full bloom and that makes me happy.

I miss Nanay so much. Her sudden passing last year left us reeling. Seeing the flowers make me feel like it is Nanay’s way of letting us know that she’s watching over us. I take comfort in these little reminders of how wonderful my mother was, and how much she loved us. I can only wish to be half the mom she was.

Oh, did I also mention how much she loved animals? That would be a story for another day. :)

Stars Fell On Arizona

The Geminid meteor shower did not disappoint. Tom's Trees were treated to a showy night and morning of "oooooooo"s and "ahhhhhhs"

Iced over.

This American Goldfinch found the branches way too slippery for a perch. Photo taken after the ice storm last weekend.

The little gentleman

One of our dear friends got married last month and she asked that Spawn Two be a part of her entourage, him being her godson. So off we flew to Victoria, BC to join them in such a joyous occasion.

Here's Spawn Two looking dapper in his suit, waiting for the rest of the bridal party to arrive. :)

Sorry +Moon Lee, I don't have any pie photo for your birthday. Have a cupcake or two instead. ;)

Happy birthday, Moon!
