My late mum (the Phil of the PhilandJack) would have turned 90 today. She took great pride in her pot of orchids that sat beneath the large tree in her front yard. The orchids always seemed to flower around her and Jack's (the Jack of the PhilandJack) birthdays. I think the original orchid came from a neighbour..but that is a long time ago. The orchids outgrew their pot and with great trepidation (and after reading hints of dividing orchids) I broke them up into smaller pots. My sister has one, my brother has one, and now this one is for Bree. I still have a big pot which is just about to flower. Then it will be time to divide it up again for the other grandchildren.
I hope it remains a living legacy of a much loved mum and grandma.
