I like what she wrote:
“Pink Saturday is about all things good that are pink. And, there is a lot of pink in our worlds.”It's not about the colour 'pink' per se, but the colour here is symbolic to look out for the 'pink' bright side of life!
I immediately thought, wayhey! I have been watching something pink that I am really excited about.
You see, I love orchids; they are my top favourite plants and flowers. I never thought that I would keep one alive if I had one. This was until my daughter gave me a lovely little pink orchid for my birthday two years ago.
It was all in bloom when she gave it to me, and I just adored those little pink faces. Then, one by one those little beautiful faces turned papery and pale and dropped off. I was left with a stem.
I was told to cut it, which I did. Then I just kept watering it at regular but infrequent times, and it was just there, a plant that kept its leaves green, but that was it.
During March / April I noticed a new stem growing, and it steadily grew. Then buds formed. I was so excited!
And now look, the first new bud opened today ... I will be able to adore the little faces again!
Well, as it is Pink Saturday, I just had to report on todays joyful event, a new blossom has opened.
I feel as excited as a kid ... or maybe as excited as a plant mum can be.
Happy Pink Saturday full of wonderful 'pink' things,
P.S. Click on the pictures if you want to see it in the original size.
During the day, my lovely little Pink Orchid opened its little face. So, this morning I took those two photos. Could not decide which one to chose, so I add both ;-)
