RDP Friday: Gobsmacked

Since being more homebound and having to order most stuff online I am no longer able to transport flowers, particularly orchids, on my scooter. It is now a new season and I only managed to rescue four plants from last year. I took a chance and saw an advertisement on Facebook from Switzerland for orchids. Switzerland being a small country, there is no problem in ordering, although it was something I had never done with orchids. I placed the order two days ago and this afternoon they arrived by DHL delivery. They were well packed and I must say I was a little gobsmacked to see how nice they were. I unpacked them carefully, they were well wrapped. Afterwards I soaked them in water for a while adding liquid orchid fertiliser. They are now outside on the porch and are really looking good. The price for all three was really very reasonable. I am now on the mailing list for this company, so who knows what I might order in the future. How life changes over the years.
