Met Monday

Met Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Be sure to visit Susan and other beautiful met monday posts. My Met Monday is an orchid plant I have that never fails to bloom. I don't know exactly what I do right with this one since I have others that only bloom once and never bloom again but the leaves are great. So here is the plant with the blooms waiting to openHere is the blooms opening. I have these plants in a sunroom off the family room but since we don't use this room much, I decided the plant needed to be moved so we can view the beautiful blooms.I moved the plant to my living room for the spring and Easter season. It had a prominent place on my fireplace hearth.
It looks nice here and we can enjoy the flowers.

Here are the blooms up close and personal. Aren't they beautiful. I did something right with this plant, I just wish I knew what it was.
Have a great Met Monday, oh and did you happen to see my post on Traditional vs Contemporary, take a look around, let me know what you think and don't forget to visit Between Naps on the Porch. This is a great way to see other great decorating ideas.


  1. I wish I knew what you did too. I have tried several times and I just can't get them to live. This is just gorgeous, what a beautiful orchid. Love it. Hugs, Marty

  2. Beautiful orchid!! It looks so happy & healthy. You're definitely doing something right!! :-)

    I have quite a few orchids, mostly phalaenopsis (or however you spell it!!) Those ones bloom pretty regularly, and the blooms last a long time. I have one species that's only bloomed once (dendrobium, I think), and a few others that have never bloomed. After 4-5 years of waiting for them, I've pretty much given up!!

    Thanks for sharing your pictures :-)

  3. Beautiful! I'd have killed it along time ago. Kudos to you for keeping this alive & looking so great.

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog so I could meet you! It looks like we have a lot in common with our love for decorating. I scrolled on down and saw your beautiful kitchen centerpiece you arranged. Very nice!

    Okay, now that we are friends, will you PLEASE tell me how to keep an orchid alive? I have no luck!

    Nice meeting you and I do hope you'll come see me again! :)
