I regularly kill indoor flowers. When Ryan buys me flowers, he often buys the kinds that are still living. I suppose even when I forget to water the plants he buys, they still do last longer than cut flowers. They sit in the kitchen window and although I spend quite a lot of time in the kitchen, I still manage to forget about them. Then I smuggle the crispy remains outside while Ryan is at work. I suppose we should all take a moment to be thankful I'm not the same with my kids. I suppose it would be difficult to forget to feed and water my kids. We can't get more than a couple of hours without, "I'm hungry, Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom!Mom!Mom!Mom!"
This orchid has defied the odds, and continues to live even though I've had it for a year or so. In fact, it's grown a couple of leaves, and is now blooming!
