Drops of Love

Last Saint Patty's Day, Jessica and I made green shamrock cookies. Well they were so good I woke up yesterday morning with a hankering for them again. This time we added Wilton's Red Gel Food Coloring in the Sugar Cookie batter and cut them into hearts, lucky for me they taste just as good as they did in March.

Going the posts from March I can also update you on something else. I made babies! Well sort of, in all reality I helped to make seeds. The two Nun Orchids (Phaius tankervilliae) capsules were sent off to Troy at Meyer's Conservatory and they were viable! 90% Viable even! I'm so excited that in spite of everything (even the tornado!) we had that kind of success. The seed assay they did reveled the embryos are 10% of the seed, which is awful tiny since the seeds themselves where fluffy like blowing flour. The Conservatory is in the process of germinating the seeds, which is the real test of viability. Interested parties can order here.

Your cookies are too cute! I think it's so neat that you did those orchids for the conservatory!
