Still blooming……

I do not have a green thumb……
So, imagine my surprise when this Orchid in the guest bedroom started to bloom after all the old blooms had fallen off. I figured it would get a couple of new blooms and then it would die like all the rest of the Orchids I buy. However this one has been blooming since last July!!!! Yes, that’s right, it just keeps on blooming!!!!!
This room gets amazing sunlight unlike the rest of the house.

I decided to add another Orchid over on the mirrored chest since this one is doing so well.
Uh oh…..I am a bad blogger! I just realized I never showed the trumeau mirror after I repainted it. If you are keeping track that would be the third time I painted it now.  Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right!!!!!
I have not seen the fox cubs since Friday so I don’t have an update for you today.
I’ll let you know if they reappear…..
Have a great week my friends!!!!
Joining the party at:
Hope to see you there!

Hi Des,
The orchids are so beautiful. Love the mirror too. I hope the little cubs are not gone all ready from the nest!!!

The orchids are beautiful! You must have found just the right spot for them. Love the painted trumeau mirror!

They are beautiful! You are so lucky to have them bloom again. That never happens for me!

You do have a green thumb! It's beautiful! I got one for my birthday in April and it's dead already! Sigh...must have been too much or not enough water. Do you talk to yours? Maybe I did and a bit too much, then again, not enough! No green thumb here!

Enjoy the blooms!

Don't you love a blooming surprise! I was at Walmart in the garden supply center and found orchids on sale for only $5 so I bought a few and put them all in a large pot. The instructions told me to just place an ice cube once a week in the pot. I had never heard that before so I am excited to see how it works.

How pretty! I heard orchids are hard to do so maybe you DO have a green thumb!! :)

I love orchids! I'm so glad that yours are thriving. They're beautiful. I have two orchids as well. One is by the tub in my bathroom and the other is on my dresser in my bedroom. I think the key is to let them get a lot of indirect light and not to over water them. Hope the fox cubs come back soon. Thanks for signing up for the party tomorrow night too!

Deserae, good for you that your orchid is still blooming, and what a pretty color it is. I really like the mirrored dresser. I've seen them around lately and admire them when I do come across one.

You always take such good pics of your house.
