Here’s a pretty thing


I bought this miniature orchid at the market maybe three years ago? I can’t remember, but I’ve had it for quite a while. It was in flower when I bought it but showed no signs of flowering again. I persevered with a fairly neglectful treatment of it, just pouring water through the compost every week. No faffing about with rainwater or special feeds. I was delighted to see buds appear at last and the first flower opened yesterday.
