I adore freesia, the smell cannot be beat!Mal @ The Chic Geek
so happy when you post! i've seen lots of roses blooming in gardens lately, and my small garden has bloomed some daffodils surprisingly. have a great weekend! Teri
Two people gave us two plants as a housewarming gift in December. Both are dead.Luckily, it looks like we'll be moving again so maybe we'll get another shot.
I tried with orchids too, hopefully yours will last longer than mine did! I even sang to the flowers. :( Also, regarding an earlier post this week, it's always great to hear from you even if it's few and far between. :)
Thanks, Vang! I like being around here more often.
Orchids are so hard to manage! They are so beautiful, but I just haven't figured out the trick to keeping them alive! Hope you have better luck!http://lindseyyoung.net
Orchids love southern or western light, so they are happiest in a window. We spray ours with a spray bottle every other day or so and once a week give them a 5 minute warm shower (literally in the shower with the door closed) and then let them soak up the steam until there is no more. They don't want too much water and like to dry out a bit in between. Good luck!More orchids here and here!
Well that didn't work. :(http://www.thenakedrose.com/2012/01/orchidland.html
Thanks, Roseann! I'll have to try this. So far it's survived about a month with weekly (um, when I remember) waterings, but I probably need to step it up. Every orchid I've ever had has died.
These are lovely. Especially the yellow ones. I have faith in you with the Orchids =)- Sarahhttp://agirlintransit.blogspot.com
Your photos are beautiful! And so are the flowers. I can't resist buying flowers, even when it means my grocery budget gets cut to lentils only! I wish I was a green thumb but I'm not sure I have it in me. At the moment I'm trying to keep herbs alive before I move on to flowers. Good luck :)
I feel you on the grocery budget issue. I try to keep it pretty cheap with the flowers, which is why I don't post so many in winter. Luckily in spring I can get them much cheaper at the farmer's market and it is easier to indulge.
If those are phalaenopsis orchids, they're really easy to care for. I don't have much luck with houseplants but my orchid is still going strong more than two years later!
Wow, they're gorgeous! Good luck with the orchid! I've always wanted to get one but I highly doubt it'd survive between my inability to care THAT much for a plant and my plant eating cat!
