My first attempt for growing orchids and this stalk just sprouted and blossomed for me. I got lucky and blessed with such intricate beauty added to my home.

I am wife, mom and grandma and enjoy all three parts of me. What started out as a hobby became a full blown passion for photographing anything. I am involved in 10 microstock sites and 4 online card stores where I sell my images on greeting cards. I also sell my cards in 3 local stores. After many hours and sticking with my dream, I am finally making decent money.

    Don’t let Beau eat them… i think they can be harmful. Did you plant them from seeds then??? They are really gorgeous… i should try it too. =)

  • I had 3 orchids given to me last year. Two survived…
