Beautiful Orchids

 
Hi Everyone, I hope you are having a great day! It is beautiful in sunny and warm Florida. I have lots of Spring flowers in bloom, but I want you to see the beautiful orchid plants in a big planter that Margaret and John, my neighbors got me for Mother's Day. What a nice surprise and it is just gorgeous!
 
 
Here is a photo of the whole thing. It has a pretty bromeliad in it and another big tropical green leafed plant plus 2 orchids, one large and one smaller.
Hopefully I won't kill it. My green finger does not include orchids, but the directions say plenty of light and not much water, so we will see. I am really enjoying its beauty right now! Thank you so much, Margaret and John!!

  1. We love orchids and have been told that if you can keep African violates then you can keep orchids. Follow the directions. The real test is can you get it to rebloom? Now that is the trick. Nice to see you again.

  2. Hi Egretta; I am currently staying with my mother-in-law. It was her 90th birthday yesterday. Her son bought her (amongst other things) a beautiful orchid! They are very popular here in the UK now, whereas they used to be something only for the experts.
