Dad enjoys orchids and we usually have one plant in the house. Usually the plant is purchased with flowers on it and once the flowers are over it has not always been easy to get the plant to produce another set of flowers. Dad has nurtured and tended this plant all through the winter, without any flowers, and now it has three stems of buds, and the first bud has opened up. Great excitement here!!
