Photo Challenge – Growth

The Daily Post Photo Challenge – Growth

 

This week’s photo challenge is a picture showing growth. I took a picture of my orchid on my desk at work. I bought it last year and this thing is constantly blooming. As soon as the flowers (which last a long time) die off, new buds appear.  It won’t be long before the stalks are covered once again with beautiful flowers. You can see another shoot growing from the stock in the background. Below the leaves is another new stock. This orchid is very happy sitting on my desk.

I just happen to have a picture of what it looks like when it’s in bloom. This picture was taken on October 26. There were still two flowers left on December 22. When I came back to the office on December 29, the remaining flowers had withered and fallen off and new buds had appeared on new stocks.

  1. Bravo. Orchids are usually fussy about where they reside. The flower enjoys its current environment . You not only have a green thumb but a positive rapport with your plants. Good for you. 🙂
