A Surprise

Yesterday I was out in the garden looking for parsley to add to my cooking & look what I found! This orchid was given to me two years ago by a little old lady ( she is in her 90's & still going strong!) . I have been watching & waiting patiently for that length of time to be rewarded with this spike containing 5 buds. The down side is the ***** snails found them before me & have chewed holes into three of them. About a month ago I saw a new shoot coming & watched with eager anticipation, only to believe it was just that, a new shoot. Now it has been rescued from the snails & I will wait with more eager anticipation for them to open. Hopefully they will look like this.
