Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Surprise! I am a day late with my weekly photo challenge entry. But I only found a suitable subject today … and given that the theme is ‘surprise’, I thought that I could be forgiven.

I have a number of Phalaenopsis Orchids all of which stopped blooming when the autumn sun started pouring in through the kitchen windows. Seeing no indication that the orchids would ever bloom again, I was starting to give up on them.  However, I have great difficulty bringing myself to throw away living plants. So this afternoon I put the orchids in a sink to water and fertilize them when to my surprise I discovered new growth on several of the specimens.

NewGrowthOrchidNow I can hope for new blooms in the new year. Maybe someday they shall even look like this again!

OrchidTrioWishing you a new year filled with happiness and hope …
