Bloomin' Orchid

Good morning,

Now that we are retired from the high seas, I can be home to take care of my plants inside and out once again.
We got this orchid when someone was going to throw it out because it was in such bad shape.  It still had a green leaf so I was happy to spend a little time and effort on this one.
Now it is looking quite healthy with more leaves and beautiful blooms. 

I love taking care of plants and was delighted to see it bloom and to finally know what color the flowers are!  Since we are no longer going to sea for ten weeks at a time, I am able to care form our plants regularly.

Love it!

Lois

Plants can do amazing things themselves and for us. Beauties!
