My New White Orchid

I wanted them both for the living room,
my choices were a lovely pot of Paperwhite bulbs
already poking out from the rich black soil,
or the beautiful white Orchid (Orchidaceae).
I brought the Orchid home, 
along with a bag of fertilizer and a new
found determination to keep this pretty
thing alive and healthy for a long long time.
"Talk sweet to your plants"
 I've been told
and they will thrive on your kind words.
My first words to the Orchid....
"Hello Gorgeous!"
Look close at the photos,
I think I see a little smile.
Blessings....Dee Dee
