The Orchid

My orchid garden continues to thrive. It is a wonderful bright spot in my world. I'm proud of myself for persevering, learning, and understanding the gentle and detailed care that orchids require.

Despite my tremors, I gave my orchids baths today. Unfortunately, I dropped my biggest one, and most favorite. The bloom base broke. It's so sad because it would have bloomed for months longer. So, I made some art to not waste the ephemeral beauty.

My home garden was inspired by the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland, Oregon. Their name translates to, "Garden of Awakening Orchids."
