Orchid Growing and plants

Postby lisaward127 » Sun Jun 01, 2014 7:44 am

Hello lovelies, I find that plants makes me feel better and gives me purpose, I look after them and watch them grow and flower, it gives me great pleasure. Wonder how manny others on the forum have green fingers and please share some of your plant stories and pictures. I love Orchids here is a picture of some that I purchased from the Chelsea Flower Show. Image

They are absolutely stunning Lisa. I love orchids and lilies, as well as roses, carnations, pinks, and a host of other pretty ones that I don't know the names of :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Is the photo you posted on 2nd June the arrangement made with artificial flowers??? If they are the artificial ones, they are incredibly life~like. It looks amazing whatever type you've used :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Hello Hun, thank you I love flowers, that arrangement is made of artificial flowers I purchased at a car boot sale, they were still boxed but dusty and nobody wanted them [CRYING FACE] but I saw the potential in them and for a pound rescued them, they had a wash and look lovely.

Hello Lisa

I love Orchids, they flower and flower. I also love all garden flowers, but at the moment we are living in a rented property and there is not one flower in the garden. I don't understand how people can own a property, and just have a bare canvas. Can't wait to own my own home again, and potter in the garden..
