The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Some late Christmas prezzies

I was working so much in November and December I didn't have much spare time for Christmas presents.  But here are a few I found time for:

For Steve, a bonsai pine tree, known to promote peace and harmony (I thought he might need them both at the time):

For Latonia, who got us all hooked on Gigi's Cupcakes, and who deserves her very own gold star:

For Lisl, who spent many South African evenings on conference calls to the US, and who was no doubt dreaming of this instead:

This is a Cattleya orchid, the national flower of Columbia, for Angelica, our own Columbian flower:

Last but certainly not least, a poppy for Amanda -- a flower symbolizing peace, which she was very good at keeping.  And because I didn't think a cattle prod would make a good painting (LOL, just kidding Amanda!).
