While the temps outside are still chilly and spring flowers seem a long way off, my houseplants don't seem to mind
A light coating of snow contrasts these tropical blossoms. We are currently having more snow today!
A south-facing window is where I have my orchids.
For many years I took them out to the patio when the weather warmed up and they received early morning light. Outside they required very little care thanks to our hot and humid summers.
I would clean them up and bring them back in as fall approached, but in the past few years I left them right here in the dining room.
They bloom twice a year and the flowers last two-three months.
a few other plants around the house:
Goldfish Plant (Nematanthus)
Abbey's Ficus Bonsai
Miniature roses waiting to be planted outside
