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.
