Denise, you’ve inspired me to share my own little garden of orchids. A couple of years ago my girlfriend started it as a single pot of orchids in the kitchen which has grown into five distinct varieties.
It brings us joy every morning as we make breakfast and coffee:
This was the first orchids that started the “kitchen garden”. It was much smaller back then with just a couple of flowers.
Each orchid has a slightly different pattern and color. We wanted them to all be unique and complement each other.
The latest addition to our garden is this yellow and dark red spotted orchid:
The purple color of these orchids is hard to capture right, but they always stands out from the bunch:
Even the plain white orchids can stand their ground having the biggest flowers of the bunch:
Vilen, I'm in awe of you having these beautiful flowers in your kitchen! Thank you for sharing them.
I love this one! The coloration really makes it stand out.
I love bright colors but plain white orchids are beautiful too.
So cool 👍
Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful orchids and gorgeous pictures, @Denise! Longwood is such an incredible place—these photos reminded me of the time I got to spend there last March. What an amazing experience!
This thread also reminded me of yesterday’s (?) “Fresh Air” program. They interviewed a researcher who has been studying resilience in children. He named the resilient ones “dandelions” and the fragile ones “orchids.” :)
That is simply amazing!
Thanks so much for sharing it; I love to learn about things like this.
