I’ve been watching my orchid fill out its buds over the last month. Yesterday, I thought the buds looked full. Sure enough, today, I just see the first lips starting to part. Doesn’t it look like it’s thinking about auditioning to play Audrey?
Anyway, my orchid is a humble, easy-to-grow Phalaenopsis that I bought some years ago at a New England Flower Show. I just feed it with some of the water from the fish tanks, and every winter I get a spray of flowers. It’s so easy, I sometimes think of getting another one, but the ones I like best are the ones that look exactly like the one I already have.
Soon, soon, flowers inside again.
