For Rachel --

Remember how shortly before Valentines Day I took this picture of the orchid you sent me (a year? two year ago?), and it led to giggles, and the story of how it was pretty much defunct due to my not know how to take care of an orchid however long ago that was, to the point of killing off my flowers but I had figured out how to water it to grow the keep growing the leaves:



Well, this is a surprising spring update for you.

About a week ago it sent up two shoots that I had assumed were just roots (because all my orchid learnings over the last however long totally involved the way roots grow out around the top of your container, too, eventually), BUT --




But, oh my goddess, totally not a root!





It looks like I'm about to have orchid flowers, again, as there are tiny baby buds sprouting on a new stalk (after my being so sure I'd utterly killed to brown and snapping the first one). But look! It's green! And they are tiny! But totally there! It looks like my new house (in six days) is going to have a blooming orchid in it sometime in the coming weeks.

Every time I look at it, I send a smile and love your way.
