Yellow Orchids

Yellow and green orchid is now blooming. It is incredible. When it first bloomed, it looked green with just a little hue of yellow. Now they are mostly yellow.

Bobby brings them home from his clients. After they bloom they are tossed in the garage. He rescues them and I bring them back to life. They don't look so pretty when they have been neglected but I transplant them into a new orchid bark mix and wait. Sometime they take a year to bloom again. This one took about two.

I guess I have a place in my heart for neglected orchids. Patience and a east window is all you need.

Sold Elephant

Another Etsy Sale today. I wasn't expecting it this morning so it took me for a loop. My Birthday's coming up next week and I've been feeling old so this was a great little treat this morning.

The linen elephant is on it's way to Stamford, CT.

Have a nice trip.
