Amateur orchiding

I know I technically just made up a word (orchiding), but it’s my way of describing my everlasting love for phalaenopsis orchid plants. 😍 I currently own 8 orchids and they’re all mini-sized. I would love big regular sized orchid with large blooms but I just have nowhere to put such a large potted plant…… Continue reading Amateur orchiding

Happy Belated 4th

My 4th of July didn’t go as expected. Life can change so easily in a blink of an eye. I was so sure in my last post that things would go accordingly as I was picturing they would.

That and I’m starting to become interested in properly identifying the names of plants…… Continue reading In Bloom

Coincidentally, the last flower photo I shared on my blog was also yellow. I swear that wasn’t on purpose, lol. I hope…… Continue reading Yellow tinted queen

Orchid head

This is a flower head from one of my mini phalaenopsis orchids. I would have liked it to stay on its branch but the plant took a tumble from the table a few days earlier and unfortunately a flower snapped off. 😢 I wanted to take a snapshot to commemorate its beauty before it wilted…… Continue reading Orchid head
