Floral Friday Fotos: My Easy Care Orchid

Hubby bought this Vanda orchid for me a couple of years ago. Ir was in a plastic tube pot and had no soil. I was fascinated to see how it flowered so beautifully without any growing medium. When it finished flowering, it was quite neglected for a while, until hubby brought it over to the new house and tied it to a palm tree in the front garden. Since then it’s flowered profusely, twice in five months.

I mist it occasionally and feed the roots if I remember, which isn’t very often, but it seems to bear no grudges at all.  This was how it looked in April.

Now it’s in full bloom again. I’m so happy that it’s flowering before we go away for six weeks, as I would hate to miss seeing it. It’s such a beautiful sight as we come into our driveway.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend. Ours won’t be at all relaxing, but I’m sure we’ll enjoy it nevertheless.

Hubby keeps telling me that we have bunnies in our garden, but when I rush to see them, they’ve already disappeared. Toady I did manage to spot a couple hopping around on the grass. let’s see if i can catch them with my camera.

Aha……success at last! I’ve never eaten rabbit, so I wonder if these would be tasty. Maybe I’ll give it a try.
