Orchids and a Lily

A couple of my orchids are dying and one is already pretty dead. I’m just a little lazy these days and forget to water them. The one that died needed to be repotted like three years ago. I kept saying I would repot, but I kept forgetting to. I still have four thriving ones so I think I’ll be okay.

Daughter wanted a lily so a couple of months ago, I got her one. She said she’d take care of it, but guess who’s been doing all the watering? It’s okay though. Husband takes care of my outdoor plants so it’s a wash. lol

Orchid Blooms

All the orchids are blooming at the same time. It’s like they are whispering to each other, “Hey, she takes care of us. She loves us. Let’s show her we love her too.”

Project Life Week 7

I didn’t take very many photos during week 7.  It was the week of my daughter’s first solo competition and there was just too much excitement and nerves in the air but that wasn’t the reason why I wasn’t taking photos.  These days, I’ve cut back on photography to add other hobbies to my list. 🙂



MB Orchids and My Blog

If you’ve been following me, you’ll notice that I’ve changed my blog name from motherof2andnomore to prettypeonydesigns.  Those who were not following my blog may not have access to my blog anymore.  I didn’t do a redirect and motherof2 no longer can be searched.

Moving on.  It’s been a long time (or feels like it) since I’ve posted any updates on my orchids.  I’m very happy to say that the MB (master bath) white orchid blooms are still going strong.  I also have a new orchid in the master bath.  Husband bought it for me last Mother’s Day.  It hasn’t bloomed again since last year so I’m really excited to see what they’ll look like soon!

Double Stalk MB Orchid

It’s March and my first daughter will be turning a decade old in a couple of days.  My second daughter will be 5 years old a couple of days after hers.  I can’t believe how fast life is flying by.  Someone pinch me.

Today, I wanted to share a few photos of the master bath orchid.  I’ve mentioned in a past post that there were two stalks with buds about ready to bloom.  Currently, they’ve all been bloomed for a couple of weeks now.  I’ve just recently had the time to photo them.

Besides my kids keeping me happy, these also keep me happy. 🙂

I can’t forget the orchid that was in the dining room.  I’ve moved it to the great room.  This has been the longest this little orchid has stayed bloomed.  I wonder if it’s because I smile at it at least once a day.

Surprise Bloom

During lunch yesterday, I glanced over to the edge of the dinning table where this orchid was and was taken by surprise at seeing this bright magenta bloom.  It had taken forever for it to bloom.  I believe it was late spring when it grew a new stem but due to over watering some days and dry spells on other days, I didn’t think it would make it, so it’s a wonderful surprise.

Orchids In Black And White

I’ve been neglecting the orchids lately.  This is a tribute to their loveliness.  I took these photos yesterday of the master bath white orchids.  These are the second set of blooms.  The first set died out about a month ago when these were just coming in.  I’m a bit sad to say that these are getting ready to go as well.  It’s funny because they seemed to have been waiting patiently for me to take their photos.  How sweet if that were true.
