Orchids, Cactus, Peppers Oct 2021




Sorry but I never get tired of Mother Nature and, in fact, she is the first thing I check on when I get up in the morning--no matter what time it is!! She has really been surprising us this week with what 'we' call Fall weather! It is rainy and hurricane season yet we are only getting light rain showers now and then and not a hurricane---so far--this season!


The most amazing plant to me is the Christmas cactus which I have renamed the Holiday Cactus (#1) because she blooms all year round!!! From the original plant I snapped off a few bits here and there, put them in pots (#2) and within a few months they started showing buds and are now blooming. I gave Terry & Chuck a small plant and within a week of their getting home it is in full bloom! The ones you see here with the buds will be in bloom in a couple of days and I will take their pictures!


Then there are the pepper plants (#3) and I never know when they will provide peppers let alone what colors the peppers will be as is the case with my yellow and green peppers though they are from the same pepper seeds!!


Last, but certainly not least, is our mysterious orchids (#4) which blooms every year about this time with the white ones on one side of the tree and the purple ones on the other side and each growing a bit more every day!


I LOVE MOTHER NATURE AND ALL THE SMILES SHE PUTS ON MY FACE!

I keep telling my friend who lives on the equator how easily you grow green peppers, so I have to find out what plants he's been growing on his balcony. Those orchids sound like something you'd find in the rain forest. Can you do a single photo of them, a closeup?
