When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Thanks Val. Not as big a collection as yours though, which are superb! @valjones-hughes

Hey, I have a windowsill with a kettle next to it in the kitchen. I wonder if I could grown one myself 😆😆

I’m sure you could. They like humidity, which the occasional boiling of the kettle and doing dishes gives them 👍😂 @ublaszko

I took it too literally last time I had them and put them in the bathroom. Turns out having someone run a bath every night and steam in it for more than an hour is not the orchid's idea of humidity. The roots rotted away before I noticed there was a problem. I'm waiting for a bargain orchid so I don't feel so bad if I kill it. 😁

It’s still just where I first put it, on the kitchen windowsill, with steam from the kettle and the washing up and all those kitchen cooking smells. It loves it 😉😂 @rachelbrooks

20 March 2018 • What can I say?! Seems the cleaner (that’ll be me) hasn’t been doing their job properly and these buds take a really long time to open...

I hope that is an actual spider and not spider mites. I was horribly mistaken when I saw and on my lemon tree. 😒

Sorry about that Jenn. I was just hearing today about red spider mites and what they do to peach trees but this is definitely a spider. George probably. It’s usually him 😉 @jennlamaye
