But first, A to Z fans, I want to call your attention to the April edition of “Three Authors, Three Questions” over at Chiseled in Rock blog. I’m featuring a mystery author, a children’s book author, and a debut dystopian thriller author. Honest, you don’t want to miss this one.
And now to “O” is for Orchid
I wish I could figure out how to keep an orchid plant alive and make it bloom again once the first round of flowers are gone.
Honestly, I do the homework, I study the orchid sites on the Internet, and I try to follow the instructions to the letter.
I buy a plant that looks healthy and has plenty of new flowers.
I do the special little watering tricks.
I talk to it.
I even beg.
It doesn’t work. The orchid refuses to give me another round of blooms, and then it dies.
I sure do wish I could grow orchids.
