Orchids...

Audrey Hepburn once said "To plant a garden - is to believe in tomorrow"

I say "If you plant an Orchid - you believe in eternity"!

My "newer" Orchid plant is doing so well, it started to bloom this week.
I have 2 very healthy shoots on it.
One shoot has 3 flowers, with 7 coming.
The second shoot has 2 flowers, with 4 more coming.

So on this dark, gloomy, rainy day
 - which I secretly love -
seeing these flowers will bring me much joy and happiness!

  2. I love dark rainy days too! I am in awe of you growing orchids! I don't have anything growing in the house - not even ivy! I think I must have a black thumb when it comes to house plants!
