Bloom blog

Jane, at Smallbutcharming, asked us to post another "what's-blooming-at-your-house-today" picture. It is still winter here in the desert, with only the manzanita in bloom on southern slopes, but I do have an indoor beauty.


I am tickled that I convinced this orchid to bloom again, and it is doing it in grand style: two flower spikes and numerous side branches. It has only been unfolding its blooms since last week. I am looking forward to enjoying it for a couple of months. Puts a smile on my face.

You got an orchid to rebloom??!!

A big round of applause for you.

I never have. Incorrect light, not enough patience.

So beautiful.

Really, you guys, it is not hard! I repotted the plant once it was done blooming and put it on a pie plate filled with gravel to give it some humidity. It stands in an east window and I water it, and the gravel, twice a week. Try it and an orchid will rebloom for you too.
