This one's for you Blondie . . . I know these aren't unusual orchids, you see phalaenopses (moth orchids) everywhere and I've put up a few pictures of my orchids in bloom but that pink one I've had for five years now and it's only bloomed one other time. For five years I've been coaxing that thing into bloom and now, it's finally happened. I repotted it this spring and it shot up a new leaf and a flower spike almost immediately. A good thing too, I had decided to chuck it if it didn't bloom this summer. Life's too short to go waiting five years for a blossom--but that pink was worth the wait.
