Green Thumb?

From 2010 Blog
I love orchids and have purchased many over the years. I never had any luck keeping one and having it re-bloom, until now. This is a photo of an orchid I got last spring and one of its beautiful new blooms. So how'd I do it? It's simple, I didn't do anything. It spent most of the summer and early fall outside on the deck. I brought it inside and Cindy watered it. So I seriously doubt my so called "Green Thumb" had anything to do with this wonderful blooming but it sure is brightening up a cold and gray February.

This picture is beautiful.

I love orchids too, well all flowers really. Last year I brought my first orchid and it bloomed for quite a while. I've kept it and have been watering it but I'm not sure if it will flower again as it doesn't appear to be doing much.

I am not green fingered either so am not expecting to get a flower as beautiful as this out of mine!
