Nanny's orchid: good huh? Mine always die


  1. Gorgeous. Hannah, your visit to the wonderful Persephone Books in Lambs Conduit Street reminds me that a visit is long overdue!

    I'm intrigued by those Christmas Foxes - must go back and have a further read!


  2. What lovely flowers. I love the colour!

  3. Stunning and glorious all at once. Thanks for posting, it brightened up a very grey rainy day here.

  4. OMG..this is so very lovely. I had one once, but I managed to kill it in a short period of time.

  5. What a beautiful plant, I bet she is proud of it?

    My sister-in-law has a deep purple and white candy stripe orchid, that has flowered for months on end, despite much abuse and mis-management.

    My orchid did flower 3 times in quick succession, but with each flowering the blooms became smaller and lasted for less time, until it eventually gave up the ghost.
