My orchid is going nuts right now. It has eight gorgeous blooms on it all because I finally learned how to water it and Audrey can't reach it.
Yes, this is the same orchid that Audrey knocked over, broke all the blooms off of and left for dead.
I really believed I had it in a safe place but you have to know Audrey.
So now I water it with ice cubes once a week and it is paying me back with its' beauty.
I think I may become an orchid fanatic if I ever get a greenhouse.
Now, since we are on the topic of plants, Sierra has fallen in love with my Basil. She wants to marry it.
"You dazzle me, Basil"
It is very attractive and it certainly smells good. Adding it to our sauces and salads has been delightful.
She guards it like it is cat-nip and she is not too pleased that it is diminishing before her eyes.
Not to worry, though. It is Spring, and once again she will be waiting for the postman on her little red bench on the porch every day. Basil will soon be a memory.
And you are probably wondering how Audrey is doing?
Well, she's been helping me with house plans and annoying paper work.
Always providing some comic relief.
