I am not good in keeping orchids. It doesn’t matter how much I care eventually I miss them. The orchids in shops are always so inviting, one wants to buy at once. Once I checked the information near orchid section it said,  guarantee for “5” weeks.  After 5 – 6 weeks when the flowers are gone the stem starts to die and then begins the waiting time for the next bloom. It can be quite long and any kind of ignorence could be very dangerous.

Dear unknown supporters I donot want to hurt you. If ever you feel that you like my posts or comment on my post and I have not visited or checked your blog, write yes in the comment section I will check your blog instantly. Please make sure that I have access to your blog as recently I marked that many blogs are private.

These images were taken in 2016 during my Keukenhof visit.

Floral Friday: Double Daffodils

floralfriday_05april19

Recently I have posted various daffodils but taken in past years. Tomorrow I am planning to visit the arboretum to see how the flowers are coming up. We are enjoying sun for last two days.

I got very busy today and after working for 6 straight hours I decided to go on hiking 😀 . I know for some it might sounds crazy but for us it’s quite natural. When the weather is good we love to be outside. When in Rome ++.

I wanted to enjoy sun but not interested in stairs, so hiked (one way) around 7.5 km and up to elevation 568 m (8.5% inclination). Up on the mountains it was fantastic. There were people but not crowded, not like weekends. I found a nice bench and read a few pages from “Cider with Rosie”, relaxed for about 20 min then came back. Now I am tired.

It’s time for yoga stretches and a good sleep. Will check the comments and blogs tomorrow.

Have a fantastic weekend.

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
