TWO ORCHIDS. MORE WILL COME

FOTD – April 5 – Two Orchids

Just as I hoped, the second big bud popped this morning. It was only partially open today, but should be fully in bloom tomorrow. There are half a dozen more buds on this stalk and more on another stalk. Also, the other orchid has buds that look a bit more solid today than yesterday. I have great hopes for it.

I didn’t process these pictures. I did nothing more than sign each one and reduce its size. I only cropped one photograph. It was refreshing to not do all that work.

I only wish more sets of pictures came as well as these did. I have made friends with my macro lens. Sometimes, the magic works.

    • AND Garry brought home a new pot of Easter Lilies. One is blooming and there are five more buds. I may not have much of an outside garden, but i got a nice one in the dining room.

    • Thank you! Oddly, Orchid have hardly any scent, or at least the ones I have have got much scent. Maybe a bird could smell it, but I can’t. It’s also possible that wild orchids have more scent that these hybrids. They certainly LOOK like they should smell great, don’t they? And they are beautiful.

    • It is great to have something to look forward to beyond bills and potential illness. Tending plants has always been soothing for me and it still is. They are so simple. No discipline required 😀

    • I also find orchids sort of sexy — for.a plant. It’s the cup shape and the colors. It’s delightful to have them blooming again. It was a long wait — and worth it 😀
