Mum's flowers

Mum's orchids are incredibly beautiful. They are just gorgeous. How she manages to keep them all alive and in full bloom is something I'll never understand. I once tried an orchid and it didn't last long! I'm only good with plants that require minimum care.

I don't know the name of this flower, but I just love the orange colour!

This is a bromelia. I love the yellows and reds in this one too. Very pretty!


  1. I love orchids too and your mum's are gorgeous. I had orchids in Australia that were outside year round. They were easy for me there. Here, they just die on me.

  2. My sister-in-law loves orchids and has dozens of them. She brought them all with her when she moved in with us over a year and a half ago. From what I can tell, they thrive on neglect and monthly waterings/feedings. :)

  3. Gorgeous pictures! I'm with you I can't tend an orchid either but they are beautiful!

  4. I think mum carries them all to the kitchen sink to water them thoroughly and then she carries them back to their window again.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
