Thank goodness for orchids in these gray days of winter. It's always a treat when one starts to bloom and the best part is they will stay in bloom for months. This one is a small grocery store specimen that someone brought me less than a year ago, and this is its second bloom. It's in a tiny little pot and it has several more buds on it as well as these first blooms. I usually keep my orchids in a sunny window upstairs to get the maximum light, and then when they start to bloom I move them around the house.
Unfortunately, this is the only white I'll be seeing today. I am so jealous as I watch the news and see the snow falling farther north. We just missed this East Coast blizzard and are only getting heavy rain today and maybe some flurries tonight.
