TalkingBirthday gift plants


I am so excited. My husband gave me two plants for my birthday that I have wanted for the longest time. I am bursting with happiness. I got

Camellia sinensis black tea plant


Piper nigrum black pepper plant


In addition, I received some really cool seed bombs from a friend.


And another friend got me a beautiful Miltoniopsis Orchid.


I can't believe how generous and thoughful everyone was!

Those are just awesome. I'm glad you had a great birthday! Hehe, get that pepper plant bigger so you can do some cuttings, lol.

Oh, Lucky you! They are so nice, especially the Orchid! Kudos to your hubby for even knowing you wanted the tea and pepper plants! Mine wouldn't begin to know such things. When it comes to plants, he just sees green growing things, and I must mother hen him when he cuts the grass. I got a chainsaw once for my BD! But if I'm honest, I did want one.
