Many years ago a friend gave me an orchid as a present. I had never particularly been drawn to orchids. I had heard of orchid growers and orchid shows but just didn’t “get that”. I mean, who had time to grow orchids, although I have always felt passionate about gardenias, jasmine, and basil!
It took me a few years to realize that the orchid I had been given was surviving in a pot somewhere in amongst the trees. By its own good fortune, I must have had it sitting in the shade! Eventually though I did start to tune in to this lovely little plant. It seemed to only bloom once in a while so for most of the year it was only a few green leaves in a pot.
