Hi Liz....beautiful photographs and the orchid is indeed a lovely exotic. Somehow it has never captured me....I really don't know why. My daughter loves them and it is about the only plant she will have in the house.......

BTW did you receive the wildflower seeds? My husband posted them and I am never sure if he actually remembered or they are lying somewhere in his office.......

Hi Cheryl,

Orchids are also the only plant I’ll have in the house, I’m no fan of plants indoors and since orchids need so little water, they work well for me because I’m no good at watering indoor plants.
I realise I do now have three Orchids, one is tiny though so that barely makes any kind of impact and was honestly intended for my desk at work…

Yes I did receive the seeds thank you very much, I’ve been planning where they need to go, and I think both may go in the new border…

Such beautiful photos ... and such a gorgeous orchid! That third photo is simply stunning.

How fortunate for you! The orchids make us wait so long but then we're given the ultimate prize. Lovely color!

LOL... Liz! Just read your reply to Cheryl... snap... I'm the very same :-))

Wonderful images, I was smiling as I looked at them too wondering how twisted you perhaps were to get them at theses angles ;-)

Beautiful photos of a lovely and rather exotic plant Liz.

Beautiful photos Liz - hope you're not too busy with work so far - it's clients coming over for Easter that keeps me especially busy at the moment but it's been a busy start in general! Lots coming on in the garden now as the last 2 days in particular have been pleasantly warm! Take care Miranda x

Hi Liz - I'm back to playing catch-up after a very busy couple of weeks! Gorgeous, gorgeous orchid flowers ....can't wait to get the tea house finished so I can have an orchid in there! :)

Lovely pics. I've been thinking about getting some orchids for a while, but they intimidate me ...

gorgeous. I have managed a repeat flowering for the first time this year... and it is down to throwing out the rule book (when I followed it they died). Weird.. LOvely photos. Helen www.happinesskindled.blogspot.com

Truly lovely orchid photos. I can never see enough of these exotic, (to me!) flower blooms. : )
