After a couple of days...like company you weren't expecting...(dare I say it nicely) they tend to get in the way, and you secretly wish they would leave! :-(
Generally, the temps will drop below 50 for one night...sometimes two...and then quickly warm up again. But this year, the temperature is staying under 50 for 4, 5 even 6 days.
We brought the orchids in a week ago...took them outside yesterday to give them a huge drink of water...and will bring them in again tonight. And looking out at the extended forecast, they will be staying with us at least until next Wednesday...perhaps even longer. I shouldn't complain...my house is full of beautiful blooms and what could be cheerier than that in winter!
Oops, I almost forgot this phaleonopsis. It produces large flowers that last and last!
