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: Seed

If there is a flower, there will be a seed afterwards. Of course they should be pollinated by some sort of insect, although I was not so sure about this one. I never expected seeds on an amaryllis, but here they are. I really should have planted them. I did see a triffid in the living room and I have it under strong suspicion,which was one of the reasons I did not plant them. Too many triffids can be a problem. They tend to follow you with their heads.

RDP Monday: Bliss

This is my afternoon bliss. The housework has been finished, lunch has been cooked and I have had my hour’s rest after lunch. Now it is “me” time. I had to wait long enough, throughout the Winter, actually about 50 years until the kids were gone and my working life came to an end. The warm Summer days have arrived and I make myself comfortable outside on the porch. The computer is installed, my camera is ready for action and I am ready to do the necessary. I just have to put the orchids on one side to make some space and remove the neighbour’s cat from my chair. I can really please myself what I do and I have my earplugs for the background music.

We Golden Oldies are satisfied with little.
