You can read all about this one-sided relationship here.
I go over in detail everything I have tried to get them to thrive.
I've tried and tried to get them to love me back, but eventually they all end up like this.
However, I am calling this last little fella something of a success.
The first orchid was on life-support after 2 weeks in my care,
the second lasted a full 2 months
this last guy hung around for about 6 months before checking out.
I don't know.
But I have adopted a new policy where it comes to orchids. I finally realized that they only cost about $14.99 and you can pick them up right at the grocery store.
Heck, I've been known to spend a lot more that that on cut flowers that last just a few days.
What was I so uptight about??
It's not like it was on my bucket list to get one to rebloom or anything.
So here is my new thinking on the matter....
“Love the one you’re with”
Maybe by slowing down and having just have one at a time, I can avoid becoming a two-timing orchid loving tramp.
That's right, just enjoy one at a time, while they last, and let them go when the time comes.
It has taken me a long time to realize that sometimes I just make things too hard when there is a simpler solution.
Ya know what????
I'm really not going to be good at everything...
......and I'm okay with that now!
