Next Spring see if you can get along to an Orchid Show. A few years ago I attended an orchid show at Tweed Heads. Orchids have incredible flowers when they bloom. Some have exquisite perfume and others look as if they came from an alien world. I’ts hard to walk away without buying something….all with the hope of course that they will flower as beautifully for us next year. They are so easy to care for and reward you with the most gorgeous blooms that last for many weeks.
I don’t know the names or species of these, but I was captivated by the great variety of flower forms, colour and textures. Orchids are also very easy to care for. Place them outside under a tree when they finish flowering and give them some water occassionally and some liquid fertilizer. Late Spring they will surprise you with some incredible blooms and you can take them inside….where they will last for weeks.
