Orchids and Zinc

Posted by Picasa
The orchids are Phalaenopsis.

Tall Husband has a green thumb, which is greatly appreciated by our plants and by me. These orchids, for example, have been thriving for almost two months. If I had tended to them, they would not have survived their first week at the Bungalow. For me, gardening is a spectator sport; though, I did make a contribution to the orchids. I brought Tall Husband the zinc cache pot. I think that zinc takes them out of the realm of too chic and helps them blend with the Arts & Crafts style. Okay, so supplying a little zinc pot isn't as great as growing the orchids!


  1. OK, that is me in a nut shell. I still can't believe that I have four house plants that are still alive. Gardening is not my thin at all!

  2. I can't live without house plants. The winters in MN are toooooooo looooooong.

    Can you tell I'm getting cabin fever?

    The orchid and pot are great together. He has the greet thumb, and you have the artist's eye. What a great combination.

  3. Elizabeth,

    At least congratulations on the four live house plants.

    So sorry about the winter in MN. My daughter went to college there at U of MN. I only visited her twice. That winter it was -6 degrees F in the jetway from the plane! You do need flowers.
