More Blooms to Brighten Up Winter

A Greenhouse of Blooms

In mid-January, I shared some of the orchid blooms that had opened up in our greenhouse. A lot more action has happened since then—even more orchids have bloomed. So I’m back with fresh photos…including two orchids that I’ve had for 11 years without blooming once! Before we take a look at all of them, please enjoy this shot of a bright, sunny winter afternoon inside the greenhouse:

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:

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:

Enjoy the Beauty of Orchids at Home

Well, here we are. It’s a weird time globally, with the COVID-19 pandemic having taken over our usual routines. I hope you’re staying home, washing your hands a lot, and following whatever guidelines your city, state, or country have set in place. If you’re in the US and aren’t sure where to find reliable information about the virus, please visit CDC.gov.

During a panic grocery shopping trip, my husband found a gorgeous Zygopetalum hybrid that needed a good home. So it’s ours now, and I absolutely love it! The blooms are stunning, and they smell incredible.

Happy 10th Anniversary to Me

I recently realized that my blog’s TENTH anniversary had passed! I wrote my first post on February 13, 2010. It’s still hard to believe I’ve kept this blog going for that long! Obviously I don’t write here nearly as much as I did in the beginning, but I appreciate each and every one of you who has supported me along the way.
