I threw out the last faded flower from the orchid plant my sister-in-law, Merle, and her hubby, Ferdie, had sent us sometime late in July. Yes, they bloomed and kept giving new ones until recently. Almost 4 months of cheer in my kitchen. I wonder if they’re headed for their winter slumber.

For the meantime, I have replaced them with something not quite blooms by definition. They will grace my kitchen until this coming Thursday, when we will turn them into a much awaited side dish for our turkey. I found them today at our Sunday Farmers’ Market.

  3. I’ve never seen a stalk of brussel sprouts! How pretty! I love orchids simply because they bloom for so long!

    Well its interesting to see Brussels in a vase, in fact I’d rather see them than eat them but I’ll choose the orchid any day!
