Orchid

I love flowers. My favourite is the orchid. I love how the flowers extend from one branch and find all varieties interesting to look at. I also love the texture of the petals and the fact that they look like they've been painted with sparkles. Unfortunately, I have not had the best luck keeping orchids. I had two orchids last year but they did not survive. I think I gave them too much love and over-watered them. I may or may not have also kept the temperature in my home too high this past winter. Either way they are gone and now I have a fake orchid sitting on my kitchen island. 

What's your favourite flower? Any tips for taking care of orchids?

Orchids are so exotic I feel..I don't think I've ever really HAD any! But they are beautiful :) My favorite flower is the Day Lilly :) Lilly is my middle name and my fave flower, how lucky!

Orchids are truly beautiful, you can find them almost everywhere in Fiji!
