LOOK WHO CAME OUT
TO SAY HI
One of my "girls" came out last week,
and I want you to meet her.
She's a paphiopedilum who's very particular
about flowering, but when she does . . .
KAPOWIE! What a fancy-pants beauty!
These orchids need just the right humidity
and balmy daytime temperatures.
But they need cool nights to bloom.
And with our crazy rainy, up and down weather lately,
it's just what the lady has been waiting for.
Leaving the windows open on those chilly nights
gave her just what she's been waiting for.
Paphiopedilums are also known as Lady Slippers.
