Oh orchid!

Mom in the backyard at Tangfang Hutong home; Popo‘s handwriting

My Mom’s name is Orchid, Lan 蘭 (She liked to use 岚). When I first started to like horticulture in 2007, my first buy was a regular size orchid. In the intervening years, I purchased plenty, and they all died or I let them go after flower disappeared. This pair were my last acquisition from last year. For once, didn’t throw them away after the flowers were gone. Ha, surprisingly, they came back this spring!! I couldn’t believe it!! Reward for my persistence and hard work, ya!
