    The flowers are lovely, but you know I’m partial to those cows. 😉

      I’ve gone towards orchids in the last few years. I’ve found them good value. A bit of effort, yes. But they flower for months with me.

      I spotted the cow and calf while out with the hound in the middle of a downpour. I thought the two eating just delightful.

    Oh, the calf is just darling. Nice shot of them. Does Jessie chase the animals when you are out with her and come upon them? Both mother and baby look quite calm
    Beautiful orchids. I’ve never had much luck with them (surprised?!?! ;)) other than the first month or two with the flowers they come with. Once the flowers drop, which does take some time, I can’t get anything to happen beyond that. I spend months with just a stick in a pot before finally giving up . I have one now that is so pretty, similar looking to yours in size/shape of flower but a bit deeper purple than your top one. Are you able to get more once the initial flowers are gone? I think we are just too dry here. My mom gets them to flower over and over again, but I think that’s location. 🙂 I would have thought that, while your wet air is helpful, that your temps might be a bit too low.

      What I did was to cut to a node on the stem they came. There will be at least two. I’ve found a new spike will grow. I’ve not put them in full sun for long, a week in spring then into shade for the rest of the year. Basically, convert the house into the dense canopy of their native spot. And I don’t water that much as they are in the shower room and getting a bit of damp everyday.
