If it weren’t for my houseplants, especially blooming ones, I would suffer terrible garden withdrawal pains during the winter months. Thankfully, several of my phalaenopsis orchids, which I keep by a kitchen window, have recently started blooming again. Here are a few photos of these beauties that I took this afternoon. I hope that you enjoy them.
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.
