RDP Monday: Nuance

I sort of collect orchids. I have discovered that in summer when they are outside they begin to develop and grow and even make flowers. However, this year was not such a promising year for good developments. I did notice that one of my orchids from last year had decided to do something different. Ir had developed some new leaves on the stem. Nothing really special until I noticed that there were also two new roots, and not weedy roots but nice firm roots.

I think it is now telling me to give it its own pot and earth. This has never happened before so I just might do it.

RDP Monday: Nuance

Good Morning

This morning was such a wonderful sky display I did not know which photo to choose. It was sun, clouds and nature at its best.

Even a passing plane decided to add some decoration. So now I am wide awake and ready for the new week. Yesterday I am afraid I got a little lazy. I was really intending to go somewhere in the afternoon, but preferred to relax and hug the bed for a couple of hours in the afternoon. I just did not have the energy to go anywhere or do anything energetic. At some time in the afternoon I decided to do something constructive, so organised the computer outside in the wonderful weather on the porch.

I disovered this development on an older orchid I have. It seems that it has decided to produce a new plant. I noticed two new leaves some time ago and left it to its own thing. It has now produced two sturdy roots and more leaves, but still attached to the mother plant. At some time I think the idea would be to separate this new growth and plant it in its own pot. It is something new for me and I hope it will be a success. Any advice from experts would be very much appreciated.

I had one of my usual feline vists this morning waiting patiently for whatever I happen to have in the feline section of my kitchen cupboard. She did not leave disappointed and got her morning breakfast treat. Satisfied she left for further explorations in the neighbourhood, or perhaps some more treats from other cat people like myself.

We had a couple of hours of thunder and rain during the night which formed some background music to sleep. This morning everything was so fresh and clean. Monday is a day at home with a bread baking session. We have had more rain and storms predicted, but at the moment it looks very friendly outside. Some parts of Switzerland have had floods, but our part has had no problems up to now.

I will now move on with a few routine household chores and wish you all a good start to the week. I might not be around so much tomorrow as I have the cleaning lady and also a visit to the doc.
