Floral Friday: Vanda Blooms Again

I have many orchids outside my kitchen window. I wish they could all bloom at the same time, but I’m always happy to see even one in bloom. This week, my orange Vanda is showing her true colours.

I read that this orchid represents “good fortune and happy blessings”, so I smile every time I see her through my window. I’m linking this post to ‘Cee’s FOTD Challenge‘.

Floral Friday: Lily Of The Incas

I love having these colourful Inca lilies to greet my visitors and our local supermarket always has them in abundance. This beautiful flower also known as Alstroemeria and Peruvian Lily, originates from South America and was introduced to Europe in the 18th century by Swedish botanist Baron von Alstroemer.

Wishing you all a really enjoyable weekend.

Cee’s FOTD Challenge: The Lovely Vanda

We have just returned from a road trip to visit our family in New Jersey. Just before we left, I took this photo of my Vanda orchid coming into bud over the fish pond. I’ve had this orchid for five years and it flowers very frequently, always with more flowers than previously. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Now the gorgeous purple lady has thirteen flowers and two more stems with more than a dozen buds bursting to come out. It was a lovely welcome home.

Cee’s FOTD: Sunshine On A Cloudy Day

Cee’s ‘Flower Of The Day’ challenge is open every day. Today is quite cloudy, but my Bromeliad hanging out on my patio, guarantees I always have some sunshine. I call her ‘My Girl’. Do you remember that song by the fabulous ‘Temptations’ and can you believe it’s over 50 years’ old? How time flies when you’re having fun.
