To have my own little orchid plant, from Trader Joe's no less, in my kitchen to look at every day is such a joy. And there are still unopened buds. So there will be more flowers. The stem has become so heavy that I have to lean it on another plant for support. I just had to share as I don't know how long I will have the company of these amazing flowers.

When we moved into our house over 1 and 1/2 years ago a good friend gave me an orchid plant from Trader Joes. It had one flower which was beautiful and then promptly dropped off and I was left with just a plant. I watered the plant regularly, sometimes with run off water from when I made broccoli or spinach. Then last month the plant began to bloom and bloom. I now have 10 orchid flowers on this little treasure. It is so beautiful. I love orchids. I visit the orchid green house every time we go to our local arboretum.
