When I had my heart surgery in February our friends Cindy and Patrick gave me a potted orchid. Of course in winter it is cold in Philadelphia so it is not such a nice climate for orchids. The pretty blossoms did not last very long. I've heard that most people in the cold regions throw away their orchids after the blooms drop. However, I saved my orchid and I brought it out to the summer cottage in May. I found a place for it with much indirect light on our deck and I hung it on the wall and forgot about it. Well, now upon my return from the UK I am treated to a fully blossoming orchid that is so beautiful I can't believe it!
