Finally!

After almost a year and a half here in Brazil, I finally have the re-growth of an orchid.
Here it is a common daily site to see orchids hanging from trees, as posted by Gabriela, in restaurants, at the flower market, at the grocery store, etc, etc.... and they are beautiful with at least four to five blooms.
So we savvy girls buy these and place them in our homes. They look so beautiful until....
the flowers die....then you are left with a plant with a few leaves..for a lllloooooonnnnngggggg time!
now, I was told it takes anywhere from a few months to a year, depending on the breed of orchid to re-flower.
Well, as stated above, my first re-flowering has just occurred a year and a half later!~

Oh that looks beautiful! Lots and lots of patience. I don't think I can do it. It is longer than pregnancy. LOL.

I had one that someone had given me when my father died. It was white and lavender. I had it for 4 years, and I finally managed to kill it. You're making me miss it. I think I'll buy another one today! The ocean behind it in your photo is wonderful. What a view!!
