Indoor Garden Update

Good morning,

Now that we are retired and at home more than we have been for the past 20 years, I'm able to cultivate our indoor garden as well as our outdoor garden.

This basket of plants was a gift to our daughter more than a year ago.  She brought it home where it has been happily blooming and trying to outgrow its basket ever since.

A few days ago I finally did a major grooming job and used cuttings to start other plants. I'm hoping to have some lovely plants to take to Catherine's office waiting room.  It would be fun to have "children" of the original basket to take there.
The "mystery" orchid is still (!) blooming.  When I got this one, I had no idea what the color of it was.  Now I find it is a gorgeous yellow, white, green, lavender, all in one beautiful flower.  I have another orchid that I know is lavender, but is not currently blooming.  I'm working on that one to make it happy enough to want to produce pretty flowers, too.

How is your indoor garden growing? 

Lois
