Bloomin' Crazy

photo of orchids by Nancy Zavada

In May, I brought this orchid plant to Saltair Station.  It basks in the sun in a window facing the ocean and drinks in the humidity and salt air.  I water it every couple of weeks and otherwise my only job is to admire its incredible beauty.

Here it is the end of September.  Not only have none of the original flowers dropped off, just this week two more buds have developed and opened into full blooms. Since the plants arrival, it has a total of seven additional blooms.

Now I realize this is a nourishing, happy place, but WOW!
