O Is for Orchid



Another example of my gardening speci-al-ity: benign neglect. This orchid plant (and several others I have) get nothing but a bit of water when I think of it ... no food, no misting, no nuthin'! Nothing but a bit of telepathic encouragement from me, and lo and behold: yearly blooms! Yay.

How beautiful! You certainly got a "green thumb" from Betty Max & Daddy. You know I am not allowed to even breathe on plants!! XXXX
