    This is a pretty picture of an orchid – the water drops make it special.

  7. This is a lovely orchid. Love it with the dew, rain, or spray drops. Mary Beth grows a few and we enjoy their flowers and scents. Nice shot of yours, Eliza.

    Such a happy plant Eliza, the flowers are beautiful! 💗

  19. Kris P says:

    Such a departure from snowy scenery! I trust the orchid is housed inside a warm enclosure.

    Just gorgeous

  21. Pepper says:

    Beautiful, especially with the water droplets. 😊

  22. Beautiful and with the bonus of water droplets!

  23. Absolutely lovely orchid blooms, and it must love living at your house. It appreciates a green thumb. 🙂

  24. Cathy says:

    Really pretty Eliza. I do not have luck with orchids and I always think people who can grow them have the greenest fingers of all. 👍😉

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Cathy. They are tricky, for sure. Karen Gibson posted a video once featuring a man who grew them. I remember they like indirect light and to wait until the roots turn white to water them (they turn green when hydrated). Fertilize monthly (which I’m not good about). That advice has kept two mini-phalenopsis on my north window sill alive for two blooming seasons!

  25. Beautiful photo and love the color!🙂

  26. Jet Eliot says:

    It occurred to me only as I was admiring this photo, Eliza, that we don’t often see orchids dripping with water. It’s beautiful.

  27. Ryan Garden says:

    Lovely orchids, we have tried to grow then a few times as house plants but they never seem to last long.

  28. Josh Sanders says:

    Beautiful pictures!!:)

  30. Beautiful indeed. Nature has ALL it.

  31. They look like ballerinas!

  32. Pretty variety and shot! I have 7 orchids in the house with 5 of them reblooming at this time. That makes me happy!

  33. Thanks for posting they are Beautiful. I have not been growing Orchids but other plants 🙂
