My Gorgeous Orchids







I havent done any cards for posting today, but thought you might like to see my beautiful orchids, I have quite a few on the Dvd cupboard in front of my living room window, and several of them are just coming into bloom.

They are moth orchids and are the easiest of the species to grow, I love them and especially the yellow spotted one you can see in the front as it has a very delicate smell. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx

They are absolutely gorgeous !
Looks like you've given them lots of love to get them in such a healthy state.

Oh Shirley, the are beautiful. We have several although I'm not allowed to tuch them, just admire. I'll show them to my hubby as he's the orchid tender here and appreciates their beauty as much as I do.

One of my sons partners is fanatical about them and when we visisted the East of Englad show we lost her in the orchid tent for a good couple of hours, but there were some real beauties on display.

Hello Shirley, thsee orchids are lovely. I will take your advice that they are the easiest because the last orchids, I killed. Not on purpose of course. They just wouldn't feed themselves, can you believe it?

Thank you also for your well wishes for my Craft Against Cancer campaign. It means a lot.

Ooo, Shirley! Your orchids are so beautiful! I had an orchid plant similar to yours, but unfortunately it didn't make it. I'm terrible with plants! Thanks for sharing! Hugs & Aloha, Linda

You are very green fingered Shirley. I bought my first orchid last autumn and now it's dead :( Just bought my second.....lets hope it lasts a bit longer.....not good with plants lol X
