Hello orchid lovers! I wanted to let you know that the Brooklyn Orchids 2018 Calendar is now available in my Zazzle store. The calendar contains original photos of orchids taken by yours truly at a variety of orchid shows and displays over the years.
My calendar measures 8.5″ x 11″ and lists American holidays throughout each month. It’s a great gift for orchid fans, or you can treat yourself to one! I know I’ll buy a calendar for myself, as I do every year.
The calendar costs $24.90, but Zazzle very frequently offers promo codes with varying discounts. There is currently a 20% off sitewide discount when you use the code ZAZZLETWENTY at checkout (promo ends at 11:59pm PT on November 19). And they typically offer promo codes for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so if you’re planning to participate in the post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy (I’m not judging…we all do it), that would also be a great time to buy your Brooklyn Orchids calendar!
Just a quick note: I haven’t updated much lately because there’s not a whole lot going on with my orchids. I hope that changes soon!
As always, thank you so much for reading and supporting my little blog. I hope all of your orchids are happy and healthy!

The mercury has dipped—for real, it’s 27°F with howling wind in Brooklyn right now—and along with the chilly temperatures comes a ton of of eating, drinking, and, of course, holiday shopping.

Lots of things going on around here! I love lists, so I present you this post in a list format.
New products in the Brooklyn Orchids Online Store: It’s been way too long since I last updated the products in my store, and I finally have some fun new things for sale—all using my original photographs. I’ve added all kinds of items like thank you cards (my personal favorite is this toothy-grinned Dendrobium, luggage tags (inspired by my upcoming belated honeymoon to Italy*!!), and even some random stuff like nail wraps (NAIL ART YESSSS), a cosmetic bag, and a throw pillow. The coupon code BACK2SCHOOL2 gets you 15% off all products (the deal ends tomorrow, August 20th, at midnight PT). If there are any of my orchid photos that you’d like to see on a particular type of product, let me know in the comments and I can whip one up for you!
Makeover is coming: I’ll admit that I’m the last person to embrace change, but my blog has had the same look for way too long and I’ve decided it’s time for a little spiffing up. Because I’ll be traveling to Italia soonish, I may not get around the all the changes until after I return, but for now just know that you will hit a completely different-looking Brooklyn Orchids at some point in the future. ETA TBD.
Pour one out for the dearly departed: I’m not referring to the disappeared people from The Leftovers. Today, I made the decision to send two terribly ailing orchids to the Great Orchid Farm in the Sky (aka my compost bin). One was the Phalaenopsis that my husband and I received from his parents in an arrangement for our engagement party last year (I hate admitting that I killed that one!) and the other was a Better-Gro Cattleya from Lowe’s that has fared quite poorly lately. I should probably not buy Better-Gro orchids anymore because most of them have died on me, although I do still have three that are doing pretty well—they just haven’t bloomed yet.
In case you were wondering what an underwatered Oncidium orchid looks like, let me show you:
I always feel a little silly writing shameless self-promotion posts like this, but it must be done. 🙂 Now that it’s December—seriously, where the hell did 2011 go??—I’ve created some new products that you can buy as holiday gifts from my Brooklyn Orchids Zazzle store for the orchid nerd in your life (or for your very own orchid nerd self).
FYI, every product in my store is created with my own original photography. There are plenty of other fun orchid (and non-orchid) products in my store including postage stamps, coasters, mugs, and more. Please spread the word—these are honestly unique holiday gifts for orchid and plant lovers alike! Thanks in advance for all of your support from me, your friendly neighborhood Zazzle ProSeller!
Edited to add: If you would like to see a specific orchid photo of mine on a particular item, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I’d be more than happy to create a product for you!
