The maroon orchids are blooming again. I just love the color on these. I also love that they’re sort of like a black leopard, in certain lights you can see their spots.
Whenever I go to Trader Joe’s I always look through the flower section. Most of the time their orchids are pretty ordinary but every once in a while there’s something interesting. I got this one last year. It’s been in my kitchen window since, living on the ice cubes that drop regularly out of my ridiculous refrigerator. I’m seriously surprised that it decided to bloom again this year.
I have for years kept a small collection of vintage refrigerator bottles in the kitchen window. I think that’s going to change. Orchids would be much more rewarding.
