Nun's orchid

2 years ago my friend, Al, gave me a baby Nun's orchid for my birthday. Last December it started sending up a flower stalk, which reached 28".. and which started to bloom yesterday. Its almost my birthday again so the blooms are another gift. Thanks Al!

So this is how Spring Fever affected me. I bought a "SpringHouse"! It will probably be more of a "Fallhouse" since its major function for me will be to winter over the tender succulents. I did order some Queen's Wreath seeds so will be starting those soon.

Heck, it could also double as a guest room! It is 6' x 6' x 6.5' and cost less than $100.00. What a deal! Took only minutes to set up with the help of Dear Friend, Karen.
It is tethered by ground stakes in several grommets and it is also tethered to metal fence posts at the corners. It will be tested today= windier than all get out! the floor has been "bedded" with shredded cedar over cardboard.
