March 2008 Orchids



I don't have any tatting ready to post, but I wanted you to see how my orchids brighten the Winter/Spring days. One of my orchids had blooms from November to March. Then the yellow Phalenopsis opened up as the last of the November blooms were gone. The first dark pink opened yesterday and there is another bloom stalk climbing it's way up the stake as we speak. This orchid has not bloomed in five years! I'm so excited. I hope you enjoy the picture.

Fabulous flowers, we love orchids too. I am fascinated by the little glass dragonflies? on your stakes.

Thank you all. I am proud that I finally managed to coax these blooms out!
I wish they were glass dragonflies Pamela! They are plastic and I buy them at Lowe's. They are very inexpensive and come in all colors. Sorry to disappoint you!

They are gorgeous! I love orchids, but do not have much luck in growing them.

Those are nice Laura. I really like the yellow phal. I really want a yellow one, but I haven't come across any yet.

Your patience has been rewarded but I must say 5 years is one hell of a wait. Don't you just love orchids.
