Now that orchids are easy to obtain and grow, can be bought as cut flowers, could they be said to have lost their cachet? May I propose that today nasturtiums could be the new orchids! Sometime tricky to grow, can be threaten by insects, are so delicate, that if you have them delivered, it would have to be by a special courier almost holding the flowers, not in a box etc. and probably only good for a day or two. Now that is luxury!
I'm sure that Cathy who hosts this meme and others joining in will have similar garden grown treasurers, sometimes with accompanying additions. If you are taken by Cathy's cake menu then I too am serving a Coconut and Lime cake when I have visitors to the garden tomorrow. Here is a link to a good recipe.
Suggesting that nasturtium could be the new orchids was a bit cheeky, and said a little tongue in cheek. Yesterday I read a headline. I ought to have read the whole article at the time, but thought I would be able to get back to it. That is the problem with on line newspapers rather than the hard copies which one can fold back and keep for later. I failed to read the article and it has been like a worm in my brain. The title was 'Are peas the new Caviar?' I can't find the article to read, but having googled it I came across an old article in The Suffolk New written by Nicola Miller in 2016.
