Lowbrow Orchid

20101228 OrchidI am a lowbrow (a person who has uncultivated or nonintellectual tastes).  Which is why I buy my orchids in a grocery store (Trader Joe’s) and then orphan them to sheltered places in the garden to fend for themselves.

This orchid (Initiated Vuylstekeara Carnivale ‘Okika’) came home yesterday.  It’s still in the bloom of youth, and beautiful.

One of these days, one of the orphans in the yard will bloom again and perhaps find a home inside for a while.
