My Orchid is Blooming!

My Orchid is Blooming!

Somehow my orchid given to me last year is blooming again.

I can’t take much credit for its success.

I just stuck it on my north-facing kitchen windowsill, watered it, and rotated it occasionally.

I didn’t expect it to actually bloom again. I don’t think I even fertilized it.

It’s nice when plants do better than expected.

Yay for easy care orchids!

Have you ever had a plant exceed your expectations or thrive in spite of you? Last year I even had a potato plant volunteer in my compost pile. Gardening is such an adventure!

  1. Thanks! I’ve never bought a orchid because I thought they were hard to care for, but this gift stayed alive, then actually bloomed. Surprised me for sure.
