first bloom

I was once an orchid killer. I've off'd many over the years with my pitch black thumbs.

But I am an orchid killer no more. The first bud sprouted when Spring rolled around, and my first bloom appeared today. Its deliciously perfect purple face stared right at us during bath time.

And we couldn't help but stare right back.

Wonderful ! first time in our family to have a new bud comes out and blooms; magnificent, must be something right done by 3 boys , whatever it is.

Must be all the splashing our boys do that supply the orchids with just the right amount of water!!
