White Orchid

When we arrived at my Nashville Brother's house
on President's Day, I immediately began
 taking pictures of his orchids.  He has a window
full of beautiful orchids in his kitchen that he has grown for years.  I noticed that one of them had a tag on it, and I did think that was odd...but I didn't realize until later, that it was an orchid he had purchased...for me!!!



As you can see, the orchid is now sitting in my kitchen.  And, it is now my responsibility to keep it alive.  My brother assures me that all I have to do is water it once a week, remove any dead blooms, cut spent stems back at the base, and take it to my screen porch for the summer.  A little plant food is o.k. too ever so often.



Please stay tuned.
If I manage to keep it alive, I am sure you will see it in the background of my pictures occasionally.
If it doesn't make it, I will never tell.
