Day 6 – Phalaenopsis


I have to admit it has been a lazy day in our household today… up late, cooked brunch, snoozy cuddles with the cats on the sofa (only disturbed by the squeals from my OH watching a rather tense Manchester derby!).

A few strong coffees later and I am back to work…. I say work, but I do enjoy doing this, and I also get chance to catch up with a few of my other favourite blogs.

Today I am sharing one of my favourite plants with you… the Phalaenopsis orchid.  I currently own eight orchid plants, seven of which are Phalaenopsis, varying from hot pink, and spotty yellow to pure white.

Orchids love sunlight, and one thing I have noticed since moving from a sunny second floor flat to a basement apartment is that they now struggle to flower twice a year like they used to.  It is a shame, but when one does burst in to bloom, it makes it even more special.

So with that, I bid you adieu.  And just as a little teaser, one of my bride’s emailed me some photos from her wedding that we did the flowers for last year and I cannot wait to share them with you next week.
