I used to grow orchids, many years ago, in a window sill greenhouse in Connecticut. Now that I live in Florida I am struggling to keep one orchid alive over my sink. It finally bloomed and I had to record this wonderful plant's bloom and foliage. Orchids are endlessly fascinating, and why I don't fool around with them here, I can't say, except that they take time and can be very particular about their environment. It was really a chore to get them to do well in Connecticut in the winter!
