Spring Things!

Before winter has gone, but after spring has just whispered its warmth, it’s always exciting to see bulb leaves coming up out of the ground. I think these are hyacinths! (My mom, sister and I all agreed these are tulips, not hyacinths – why they’re coming up earlier than anything else, I don’t know!)

And I was going about watering my indoor plants and noticed my orchid has buds. I have had several orchids for years and years and years – at least 5 to 7 years. Never rebloomed. Then last year, this one decided to have one stem with flowers. I was beyond excited. This year, it’s got three stems that have buds! It’s a red cattleya orchid and it looks like all three stems will be out around the same time. Pix to come!

  1. One of my very favorites. Then come the daffodils that shake their pretty heads in the wind and say HELLO. Then I have to have peonies because their scent is amazing. Have fun planning. Beth

  2. Congrats on the blooming orchids. I didn’t realize orchids were difficult bloomers. We’ve got difficult orchids but I always thought it was just us. 🙂

    It’s great to see pictures of spring arriving. Thanks for sharing.

    • LOL No I don’t think it’s just you. All my family has had problems having them rebloom. I think part of it is for them to have a place where the environment stays calm, not hot, not cold, no chills, not too dry. Everywhere that I’ve seen orchids rebloom have been in these conditions.
