Our Orchid

We don’t usu­al­ly have great luck with plants, although we inher­it­ed quite a few that sit on the ter­race from the pre­vi­ous own­er of our con­do. Pam has lost 1 to an infes­ta­tion, and added 1. So far, so good.

We were pleased to get this orchid as a gift from our neigh­bor a lit­tle less than a year ago. After it lost it’s blooms, we fig­ured that it would at best be alive, but that would be it. Sur­pris­ing­ly, it has bloomed again. Maybe liv­ing in this exceed­ing­ly mild cli­mate means that more exot­ic plants, like orchids, have a chance here.

I know these blooms will be over by next month, but they cer­tain­ly are a nice splash of colour for now, and are much appre­ci­at­ed, since we left behind the spec­tac­u­lar fall foliage of New England.
