What a gorgeous day today, it felt like spring, still bit too cold but full of sun. I could not resist and bought some pussy willow from an old man that we met on our morning walk and then orchid called Berry Oda in full bloom. And a great afternoon with my sister and some hot chocolate. Thanks for the company : )

One of the Christmas traditions that my family keeps is bringing home a cherry tree branch on December 4th. This premature warmth encourages the branch to blossom. According to this tradition, if the buds blossom on Christmas Eve, then the girl who tended the branch will find a good husband within the year. Others interpret the flowers as signs that good fortune will visit the household. Well, I already found a good husband, so it must work : )
