Letter from Ruth to Anne: December 21, 1976

Dear Anne,

Lois mentioned your trip with Jack to select a gift for Lois – the orchid. She enjoyed the plant so much. Orchids, it is said, are easily grown. Can you imagine it? Some plants are tougher than we realize.

A storm, hurricane or whatever, came in September, 1975. Angel's Trumpets (large white blooms) were twisted, pelted, and banged. Blooms and leaves were hardly damaged. The stalks stood. There were twelve or fourteen stalks, some as tall as eight feet. Many blooms were on the stalks.

I'll write you a letter soon. I'd like so much to hear from you.

Love from Aunt Ruth.

Thanks for stopping by. What are you writing about today?
