Growing up my dad taught me how to change a tire, change the oil in my car and how to run the walk-behind tiller in the garden. I still have the tiller, but I lost my dad last week. He hasn’t been able to get out into the garden for years and the last few months he has been in a nursing home. Now he can get out in the garden all he wants. And weed. Although, there probably aren’t any weeds there.
When I came back to work, I found something on my desk.
A beautiful orchid! It has a tag that says “Just Add Ice Orchid” and that is because you just have to add three ice cubes once a week to water. I am dubious about it surviving in a house with four cats, but I will certainly give it a go. I have a place picked out that they boys can’t get to (easily), and they won’t see me put it there and get curious about the new addition! I’ll keep you updated about the progress and survival of the beautiful plant.
Now, I need a name. The orchid is so beautiful and doesn’t have a name, so what do you suggest?
