Our Orchid


By eirlys


This is another image from Picasa. The flowers lasted a very long time.

My husband and I clash over Orchids. He loves them; I tolerate them.

When they are in bloom they are beautiful and as, I said earlier, the flowers last a long time. However when the flowers are gone we end up with pots of long leaves that take up so much room inside the house.

Because they are not watered a lot the pots are light and the plants often fall over!!

Ah well!!

at least they are not pushbikes! I have several parts from them all over the house. At least they are better than when he really was into motor bikes :o))

The flowers are lovely.

I agree with you - they have beautiful flowers as long as they last.
Good job they last a long time :o)

Beautiful, but I also agree with you. Beautiful while they bloom. I do have a hard time to make them re-bloom.

Actually ours do re-bloom, which is good. It's the time in- between that annoys me!!

Seaburngirl: Yes, grateful they are not pushbikes. I knew someone once who kept his motor bike in the hall. (not ours, thank Goodness.)
