Jul. 13, 2014 [update]: While poking around in our greenhouse today, I noticed some flowers peeking out at us among our Oncidium Alliance plants. We didn’t even see the flower spike forming on this one.

The flowers still smell like cotton candy as we remembered them.

May 19, 2014 [update]: Our Miltonia Andrea West ‘HOF’ gave us 2 more spikes but it got blasted a little bit because of the crazy weather.

Feb. 1, 2014: It’s finally February! That means it’s English Gardens 12th Annual Orchid Festival. Despite the 6-8″ of snow falling, we brave horrid roads and motorists to go to our favorite branch in Royal Oak. We wanted to attend the two free lectures scheduled in the afternoon to see our fellow orchid enthusiasts in the area. The speaker was Carol Butcher from the Michigan Orchid Society and she was absolutely inspiring. We made some new friends and got even more excited with our new hobby/obsession. We’re definitely joining the Michigan Orchid Society at their next monthly meeting.
