National Orchid Day #doodlewashaday

April 16th Is National Orchid Day!  Here I have doodlewashed a white Phalaenopsis.  Being a retired or X florist I used to love working with orchids in bridal bouquets.  For many years there was always one growing and blooming in my kitchen.  Lately I have noticed orchids have become very popular and I am seeing them every where and in varied colors.  Not such a bad thing as they last for ages and make wonderful cut flowers.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  Cheers, Susan

  7. …how lovely. I used to belong to an orchid society and had quite a number on the go. Now I have two phalaenopsis which are no trouble to care for (they only run into trouble when cared for too much!) You have captured their lovely shapes so well.
