My Orchid and others...

My "Just Add Ice"  Orchid is blooming for the second time... since I received  it.
My daughter gave this to me for Mother's Day last year.  This Orchid is easy to care for -- just give it 3 ice cubes once a week!  Place it in a bright location with 65-85 degrees F., away from drafts.  I guess I did it right.  haha

And it has lots of new buds on it,  too!

The light was not so good here...
but you get the idea...

Another magnificent bloom...

These are called "Paperwhites"
and smell so wonderful...

This is an Amaryllis that has no flower, so far...
I am patiently waiting and crossing my fingers...


As you can see,  I am anxiously awaiting Spring
and appeasing myself by growing some flowers indoors.
We all need to fulfill our needs somehow!
There is hope...
these last few days have warmed up some
and the snow is slowly melting and going down.
I want to see my grass again!  I know it's under there somewhere!
With time flying by so fast,
we will be having a heat wave before we know it,
and then we'll say it's too hot!
I can't wait!!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

Hi girl, This orchard is just beautiful. I don't have plants as you know inside cause Badger eats them but I wish I could. Loved seeing you at the flower show. Lots of love and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW... LJ
