New Addition

While grocery shopping at Trader Joe's yesterday I picked up a new plant on a whim, as one often does. A stately Cymbidium orchid, it is now the biggest plant in the glassed-in porch/plant room and adds not only gorgeous blooms but also a lot of foliage.

Cymbidium cv.

Cymbidiums were never among my favorite orchids until I saw them as glorious outdoor container plants in San Francisco gardens in early spring, lining staircases and flanking doorways. Hopefully I can keep it similarly happy here.


Thanks for stopping by!
