Waiting for the orchid to bloom!
I know, I know, you must think I'm nuts, but I AM waiting for the orchid to bloom. Ever since we brought Mums orchid plant that we gave her last year for her birthday, I never, ever expected it to bloom and just hoped it would live!
Suddenly one day putting the clothes out to dry in the balcony and my eyes nearly fell out of my head! Pow! The orchid had thrown a spray and I was dazzled.
For a long while I refused to photograph it, worrying if the flash might 'disturb' it or be too bright for it and hurt the tender buds. Then finally I gathered up courage and have taken this set of three pics of the spray of buds as they grow.
Once the buds bloom I will take a really nice pic to show off! But untill then, this is all I have got to show for my excitement!
