[Photo A Day June Prompt For "30 Things About Me" Series]

Orchids are calming to me. Probably because while growing up, my parents always had one - or two about. They like low light, warm places and a light watering once a week. OK seems easy enough. Mark Cullen, Canadian gardening guru explains in this video, Orchids are an easy to care for plant. They are known to provide exotic, continuous blooms with little effort. He even professes they are easier to care for than an African Violet. Err Mark, meet Debbie - killer of the Orchid nation! .

Fact 4 About Me
Orchids I do seem to have a knack for killing and rather quickly! Perhaps this plant will be my first to survive my tender loving care!

Both photos are wonderful, beautiful orchids with great meaning to you. Maybe this one will thrive and prove you do have a green thumb after all.
