Brown Orchid...

Hello Dhaarlings...

 You might remember that I went to the local orchid club show a few weeks back?
 I picked up a couple of pretties in my excitement. and one of them I have been waiting patiently to bloom...
And this week it finally has...



It is a lovely Brown Cymbidium

 

It has cheered me up to no end...


I think it has been well worth the wait...

 Don't  You..

  1. I guess in this case saying you have a brown thumb is a compliment!

  3. Oh hai XL & MJ.

    It's gorgeous. Look at the size of it. I'm just hoping mine will live, much less flower again.

  4. Do they remind you of your bum washing days at the nursing home, are they fragrant?

  5. Wow, it's beautiful Princess. I've never grown orchids myself but your photos may very well inspire me.

    Thank you. Approprite her but it was a rather embarrassing compliment to get at the nursing home.

    It will be if it survives to flower again next year...

    You are referring to my Orchid now are you not?

    Dear Mitzi

    "Do they remind you of your bum washing days at the nursing home, are they fragrant?"

    Similar colour and not as wrinkly... and unlike the nursing home they have no smell....

    They are not really that hard to grow. Cymbidiums anyway. most of mine seem to thrive on neglect. Feeding them at the right time is important but i can never remember when the right time is. Will have to consult the book again...
