Flowers at Home: Orchids

So he brought me a pot of orchids to cheer me up last weekend after my surgery. It is a beautiful plant with four shoots of flowering stems displaying flowers with light pink petals and fuschia lips.

In the morning I bring it next to the window to allow it to get some air and then right before I leave for work, I move it back to the coffee table.

He knows I am not good with plants but he told me I deserved another chance and then crossed
his fingers.

Am quite confident I won't kill it actually, because the orchid pot I have owned for 2 years now which I thought I've murdered several times through drowning or starvation now has flower shoots. Yes, that is plural - there are two, not just one.
