Winter Blooming in Full Swing!

Very Exciting Times

For the first time in YEARS, I have several orchids blooming and many more in spike. About two thirds of my Phalaenopsis orchids are currently blooming or in spike! Having our greenhouse has REALLY paid off. 🙂

So I’m here to share photos of my orchids that are in bloom! The first to bloom on a new spike was the Phalaenopsis tetraspis var. alba that I ordered from Orchids by Hausermann last summer:

Some Thoughts

It’s hard to process yesterday’s sickening insurrection on the U.S. Capitol Building by domestic terrorists. I’m here to state some of my own thoughts about yesterday’s disgusting events. If you don’t like it, you’re more than welcome to find another orchid blog to follow.

Fall Spikes Are Here!

Fall Time is Spike Time

I know it’s been a very long time since I last posted here. Might as well begin all of my blog posts that way.  😛  I tend to post on Instagram more often because it’s quick and easy. Anyway, five of my orchids have begun to spike, and I wanted to share photos of them!

First is the Phalaenopsis tetraspis var. alba x sib that I ordered from Orchids by Hausermann using my birthday gift certificate:

Birthday Gift: New Orchids!

Orchid Gifts for the Greenhouse

My birthday was last month, and my husband surprised me with a gift card for Orchids by Hausermann! I’ve ordered orchids from them in the past, but it’s been many years since I’ve done so. Now that we have the greenhouse, it’s a good time to try some new orchids!

I actually ordered NINE new orchids in all…here are some of them:

Black Lives Matter.

I wrote this post on my personal blog the other day, and I wanted to share it here as well.

Our country is in a massive state of upheaval right now. First and foremost I want to say that my heart goes out to the families and loved ones of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and the way-too-many other victims of racial violence. These senseless killings are sickening, and they must stop. White supremacy and police violence have no place in our society, yet they persist because so many people (myself included) don’t speak out enough.
