Orchids for Murisopsis

Val was wondering about the orchids that I grow. My children give up on them when they , the plants go into hibernation. So they sometimes bring the almost dead ones over.

I have some more that are in my Cannon Camera. They are just gorgeous. I have never seen the delicate pastels of pink and orange in the petals before. I am lazy to get out of the bed and post them (1:30 a m now).

Val hope you like them. Love and hugs.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Wow, these are wonderful! (I did not know that they hibernate, but it makes complete sense.)
    Val will love these!

    • Zakiah says:

      Oh yes! They hibernate, and so many people throw them away while they are hibernating. Every time I hear that, I cringe. You will never know the joy of seeing the new shoots that come after the hibernation.

    Beautiful collection and they are quite many.
    And yes I feel their hibernation period is bit too long.

    • Zakiah says:

      Just don’t throw them away though.
      The orchids I have shown are only few of them. I feel bad hogging the entire space to show them off. πŸ™‚

      • Rupali says:

        That’s so cool. Your house must be beautiful.
        What a feeling in living in such a place.
        No I don’t throw them. I love plants,

    I do love love love them! They are blooming is such profusion!! The white one with the faint yellow center must have 20 flowers! All of these are magical. I love how you have managed to make them so happy that they want to show off for you.

    • Zakiah says:

      Me too Val! I love them. Unfortunately people think that the plants need a lot of water. They don’t. Just about amount of two ice cubes is sufficient. In tropical climates, the moisture created by the humidity alone is enough. They love humid weather.

  5. The orchid doctor… you have a way with orchids.

    • Zakiah says:

      I love them Matt. I have two now, that have the most delicate and subtle color to them. I will post their pictures a little later.
      Hope you are doing well darling. Love and hugs to you.

  6. Nice variety! What a green thumb!

  7. They ARE Gorgeous! Their colors are so pretty, their textures so delicate, and they so strongly exude the sweet smell of love!
    You are the Orchid Queen, SweetZ! πŸ™‚

    PS…Orchids me think of a fav quote: “An orchid in a deep forest sends out its fragrance even if no one is around to appreciate it.” – Confucius
