Brooke Is Back!

 Yes, her name is Brooke.
Every time she comes out I feature her!
She starts out like a long cluster of small buds.
My dog Sweepy passes her by
oblivious to her shrill singing!
She calls out to every one . . . 
But the weather is too hot 
and everybody is too busy
to stop and listen and pay attention . . .
Even if Brooke does it in duet
and in full diva tone . . .
. . . all of Heaven is completely gone . . .
This week we are having a full blast of hot dry spell
which makes everybody tired, sickly
and yes, too distracted to notice MsBrooke
one of our lovely orchids in Heaven.
I hope everybody is doing OK in your part of the world.
And Happy Earth Day to all!

Ms. Brooke is a lovely orchid!
I like the color of her buds and then the color she becomes when she blossoms.
Hope you had a wonderful Earth Day.

As I said to Sweepy, I came to late for the Earth Day, but hope the day was fine and gave you a lot of joy! :)

It's warm there I believe.. here it's more cool, I should try and send you some cool air, to blend with the hot air you're having..

What a beautiful Orchidé. I have one plant in our flat, which I'm proud of.. I was not before, as I thought it would die.. but after I started to give it water twice a week (normally is once a week), it has got several buds.. 10 buds, pluss 2 tiny small.. and once a week I give it natural fertilizer, not a very good smell, but good for the plant, and then I'm far too happy :)

Lovely days to you! :)
