At last!

I bought an Australian native orchid for my husband 4 years ago.  It was in flower when I bought it, but we haven't seen it flower since.  It tried to 2 years ago but the snails ate the buds before they could flower.  Now we keep it on an outside window sill where no snail or slug could ever find it.  The flowers are tiny and delicate, very white with deep pink speckles.

The only orchid we haven't managed to kill. 


  1. That is so pretty.

    Also, knowing that you've not been successful with orchids in the past makes me feel OK about somehow managing to kill the one I got for my birthday this year. :-)

  2. Sadly there is a trail of dead orchids leading to this one success, but yes, definitely take heart!
