Saturday Serenity: Orchid, Blooming Right Along!

I cannot begin to tell you how much I adore this orchid! I’ve had this beautiful plant for over ten years. It blooms, then it doesn’t. Rinse and repeat. It doesn’t always reveal its stunning blooms at the same time of year.

So, here’s to Spring and the magnificence that Mother Nature shows us!

I hope you have a blooming good day!

    That orchid is stunning. I have never tried growing one myself but it looks like it would be worth it.πŸ’ž

      Why thank you so much, Anne Marie! People have said that orchids are extremely difficult to grow. I know this to be true from past experience. However, this dear plant seems to have a special ability to keep on blooming. I don’t credit myself for this, though! If you get the chance, please give it a go! They are so beautiful! Cher xoxoxo

        Oh yes, I think you should, Anne Marie! When mine blooms I grin from ear to ear! It’s such a wonderful sight! The only ‘tip’ I have is to use soil created specifically for orchids. Yes, please give it a go! Cher xoxoxo

    That is so beautiful! I received a purple orchid as a gift recently and I’m following all the directions to keep it thriving. I have to admit I don’t have a green thumb πŸ’–πŸŒΈ

      Hi Becky! Thank you so much! They are difficult to grow, aren’t they? I cannot take credit for this beautiful flower! I do think it has quite an internal fortitude and I mustn’t for get that!

      Yes, I really do know what you mean! If I wrote about the number of plants that didn’t do so well under my care, I think I’d be writing A LOT! LOL Cher xoxoxo
