D.K. Christi wants to wish us all a “Happy Valentine’s Day”. She says, “No chocolates for me on Valentine’s Day. For me, orchids are the most exquisitely beautiful flowers in all their infinite varieties. If you wish to give a gift of love, give an orchid.” She also recommends tucking her book, “Ghost Orchid” into the gift basket.
