“Back so soon!”, you say? Just learning to go with the flow and not concern myself with the order of things or with catching up.
I just love orchids! Don’t you? Several years back my neighbor moved to NC and gave me his orchids. Some have since passed, several still remain faithful. But this started my love affair with these amazing plants. What other plant can you totally ignore (or so it seems) and then they produce such a magnificent show of beauty?! Mom and I took an orchid care class at a local orchid farm once, but it was way too complicated for me. Seriously, I do very little with my dozen or so orchids. They sit on my porch where they enjoy morning sunlight or hang on a shepherd’s crook under the white bird of paradise that provides some filtered shade. When I remember, I spray them with the hose or plop a couple of ice cubes on them. Occasionally I will give them a good soaking in a bucket and feed them some orchid food. That’s it. Once they begin to bloom I bring them inside where we enjoy God’s artistry.
Have a lovely weekend. Be kind. To yourself. And those who God brings across your path.
