Orchid Day

As you all probably know, I have an Orchid that has decided conditions were right to finally flower after several years of being pretty much dormant (other than growing new leaves).  This event has made me quite interested in these beautiful flowers, so when I heard that there was an open house at a local… Continue reading Orchid Day
