13 rue Thérèse is finally out in France! Hooray!
Is that cover sexy, or what? I think I like the purple even better than the red they had on the spec cover. I have yet to see it in person, and I am totally dying to do so. Hurry up and send me my copies, Michel Lafon!
In other news, I am officially a crazy orchid lady. What can I say? They are awesome, for a whole list of reasons:
(1) They are cheaper than a bouquet of cut flowers, plus I don’t have to kill anything to brighten my home.
(2) They are pretty and colorful and, let’s face it, pretty lewd-looking–especially when the bud is first splitting open. Any flower that freaked out Victorians is a friend of mine.
(3) They are low-maintenance lifeforms that somehow manage not to succumb to my black thumb.
(4) The cats thankfully do not seem to be interested in eating them, probably because the orchid is one of the few houseplants that will not poison them! (Huh. I wonder how much of an overlap there is between crazy cat ladies and crazy orchid ladies…)
Here is a little gallery of the new friends I have acquired since I last posted on this blog:
