Doing more with pictures in 2012…

114 – Flowers


This orchid was a housewarming present that my friend received, from a family member.  She’s not good with plants anyway, but there was a particular irony in the detailed instructions given with this beauty.  There are 2 other plants in the approximately 8X8 basket this is potted in, and the orchid rises up and curves above them.  The instructions for the orchid indicate water is necessary about every 3 weeks.  The instructions for the foliage plants in the basket?  Water every 2-3 days.  Of course.

    Nice depth and I love the how the first orchid starts out sharp and how they get softer from there!

    I really like the way the sharpness of the first fades into a gentle roll to the last flower then the leaves and stem, beautiful flower, beautiful photo.

  9. nice and soft. Those orchids are quite easy and blloom for a vey long time. My favourites as you can forget about watering them for long and they still survive :-) always interesting how they put flowers together in baskets……..
