ABC Wednesday - O



O is for Orchids

The first two pictures were taken in the beautiful gardens in Singapore Airport





and the next two are my orchids at home - and yes they are easy to grow!

Beautiful orchids. Yours are every bit as nice as the ones at the Singapore Airport, even if you don't think the location is quite as exotic. LOL
I swear I gain a pound every time I see your blog header. That bread and jam...yum!!

Kay, Alberta

The Orchids are beautiful. So glad to see you can grow them, and I didn't know they were easy to grow.

The airport have a team of people looking after the orchids and a small nursery. There's a few outdoor garden with flowers like sunflowers, and cactus around the airport. Did you managed to see that?

mrsnesbitt said...

Beautiful! I was once given some as a present and they lasted for ages.

Jay said...

Wow .. that's the airport? Isn't it lovely? Quite different to ours, huh?

Yes, orchids are easy - at least phalaenopsis are. Otherwise, I wouldn't have any, and if I did, they wouldn't flower again every few months as they do! :)

Lovely! I wish I could keep them going! It's one of those plants that I just can't keep alive..
