Orchids amaze me. They have a lasting beauty that seems almost artificial....made of wax. But, it's real.
I was given this Phalaenopsis, several years ago, by my son and his family. It has bloomed faithfully every year. I have several others. But, they bloom when...or if...they feel like it. And, not yet this year.
These blooms started coming on, at the end of April. Here we are, toward the end of July, and they're still beauties. The long-lasting blooms are...well...amazing.
One day soon, they'll begin to wither and the blooms will drop. They'll lose that waxiness, and turn to tissue paper. Sometimes, it seems they do this over night.
Until then, we'll enjoy this beauty. And, hope it's sisters decide they'll give us a show this year, too.
Have a great weekend. And...
