My bet on when the orchid would bloom was way off. It started to open up yesterday and this morning was completely open. So, even Colin was three days off, but I still owe him a back rub.
In other outdoor news, our garden is looking good! Our tomato, bush beans, cucumber, and potato plants are in bloom. Yay! I harvested our second round of compost and made compost tea from it last week, so our garden got an extra boost of nutrition, and I gave some concentrate to three other people to share the love.
