Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, March 5, 2017
Mother's Day 2016 our daughter, Julie, gave me a beautiful Orchid Plant.  I had never had an orchid plant before and I loved it!!
Once the flowers fell off we weren't quite sure what to do with it, and I hated to throw it out.  The leaves were still healthy, but the rest just looked like a bunch of sticks.  Dale was determined to see if he could get it to bloom again.  I am so thankful for his perseverance because he did get it to bloom again!!  After researching he found that they only bloom about once a year.  We bought a larger flower pot so the roots had room to spread and then we just waited...
Once we spotted some buds it took at least 2 months for this one to open up 
The more they open up the more yellow they look
Every bud is open now
What a beautiful feeling of spring this brings into our home!
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful, Christi! How fun to see it blooming again! I can't keep anything alive inside, but outside is another story. :)
