One of my favorite flowers is the orchid. I have four plants at present. One of them recently started blooming. It is my large white Phalaenopsis. Today it had five blooms with two more yet to open. I have trouble getting them to bloom. A few weeks ago a friend of mine told me what he does to get his to bloom - so I tried it. I picked one day and watered the plants on that day without fail. And low and behold the plant started blooming. I have just started the same plan with the rest of the plants. I took some pictures of the blooms today just in case I can't get it to bloom again. I have included some of those pictures below. I also decided to try my hand at a haiku just for the occasion. Be kind, I am not a poet.

A Phalaenopsis
beautiful, white and fragrant,

continue to bloom.

Lion Hug

My friend Diane sent me a link to a video of a lion hugging a woman. I did a search on Google and this video was everywhere. Just click on the picture to see the video. You see lions can be very nice!
