Things in My House Thursday

This is my first time participating in Things in My House Thursday. Here's the link if you want to see some fun things others have posted and join in the fun at MommySweetMom

In case you're wondering I love flowers, plants, gardening, anything that grows. Today I'm sharing my orchid plant which was given to me last year by my sweet husband. It was in full bloom when he gave it to me and gradually lost all it's lovely blossoms. I was determined to do all I could to make it rebloom, and alas it's in bloom again. Whooo-Hooo! I've tried orchids before and never had succeeded in reblooms. For me, it's like having a new puppy, or a baby. It's been sitting on the edge of my tub in the bathroom, but I've moved it to the mantle so I can enjoy it every minute.

It's beautiful! I am not successful with house plants. I think I mess with them too much.

I'm so glad you joined TIMHT!! :o) I look forward to seeing other things in your home.

It's lovely, Dana, and I am very impressed that you can grow it. Other than pets and people, I've given up keeping things alive in my house. I do have a Peace Lily which keeps hanging in there; I guess because it needs little light, and my house HAS little light! ;-)

I'm so happy you joined in TIMHT! :-)
