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!
