A couple of years ago a close friend gave me the gift of an orchid. I do love orchids and have bought a number of them over the years, usually when they are in flower. And usually they never flowered again! No matter what i nourished them with….
This is what my gift orchid looked like last year….it started growing these amazing aerial roots. I loved them
About four days ago, there was a quite a warm patch of weather. Suddenly the blooms seemed heavier and somewhat larger. And there towards the end of the spike was the first opened flower…delicate and beautiful.
Over the last couple of days more and more have opened. Each morning I venture out the back to find more. I did count the buds. There were 46 buds. This is the latest image taken early this morning. They are still not all out….. How amazing is that?
