It being Garry’s 80th birthday yesterday, his brothers sent him, which means me, a new orchid. I now have four, one for each of Garry’s birthdays. I can’t believe that either of them actually thinks Garry is tending these beautiful flowers since Garry in his life has never shown even the slightest interest in gardening or flowers or anything earth-related. As far as I’m concerned, these are my annual gifts.
I love the color of the orchid. It’s a rich lavender that is translucent. Since I know how these “bouquet” orchids are potted, as soon as it is done with this blooming, I’ll properly transplant it into the right soil. I hope when it blooms again, it will retain its beautiful colors.
