O is for Orchid

Last March, the hubs and I got an orchid.  It was one of the centerpieces at my coworker's daughter's baptism/2nd birthday celebration.  It's still alive!!  In the above pic, those are some of the buds that popped up back in December.  I can't even remember how many orchids I have had but this one has survived the longest. The first one I ever had was a pretty green one that I brought to LA to live.  I have reason to believe my ex-roommate's karma killed it. lol. Sigh. Most of the buds have already opened. And guess what? There are a few more. I just wish they weren't all on the same branch.  It has become quite top heavy.  I want to move it into a bigger pot but I also don't want to mess with it.  It's survived this long, you know? Yay for our orchid!



  1. Hey there, I am neglectful as well, since I haven't been reading my favourite blogs, nor posting to mine very often. Don't beat yerself up...

  2. Plants are amazing. All they need is light and water. Maybe the occasional feed. I whisper encouragement and appreciation to mine--just in case they need that too. Blog on!


  3. The orchid is one of my favorite flowers...but I'm not very good at keeping them alive. When I lived in Borneo I had them growing wild in my garden. That was wonderful.

  4. I am terrible at keeping plants too. What a pretty flower!

  5. Yay for orchids is right! What a pretty orchid. It must be happy where you have it. I think orchids are the best flowering plant. Their blossom are so long lasting. I know I'm hooked ;)


Hey everyone,
