What’s Blooming!

Hey – another Friday!  Yay!  Even if I have to do some catch up work, it is still Friday.

I thought I would show you my orchid.  The day I bought it:

Today:

I didn’t kill it, Pixie hasn’t eaten it and it’s actually growing! Initial success, I would say.  Maybe in 6 months it will flower?

Speaking of Pixie, I did a trial run of her new bed.  Meaning I just brought the drawer inside and put a towel in it to see what she would do with it.  Didn’t want to make it into a bed for her until I saw she might be interested.

Turns out she quite likes it.  I feel like such a bad kitty mom for not getting her a bed years ago. Now to paint this and get a better cushion.

More indoor blooms.  This is my bromelia (??)  Another Lowe’s clearance plant for $5.

Normally it does not sit on my garbage can, but I want a good background for it.

 

Off to the balloon fest this evening!  I am sure I will have lots of pictures 😀

    How fun that Pixie loves her new bed. I’ve been thinking that I need to make new beds for Monk and Sophie. Their’s are so lumpy I can’t believe they even get into them. I want to make them with removeable covers so I can wash them. Well, more info than you wanted to know about doggie beds : )

    Good luck with the orchid. I’ll be really interested to see if you can make it bloom. I tried one time, but it gets too cold inside for the type that I had (so they said,) so I gave it to my sister in the bay area.

    Have a good weekend!

    Our kitties love their beds, and glare at whichever one has snared the “best” ones. Our previous cats didn’t have beds either, and I actually felt guilty about that, too.

    Their favorites are the oval or oblong all-fleece beds (got them for less than $10 at Walmart or Target).

    and they’re crazy about the tall, round ones, like this one:

    But she’ll love the homemade one, too!

    A lovely new bed for Miss Pixie in time for her to snuggle down for the coming cold weather. I just love how your indoor plants are my outdoor, growing wild and crazy in the garden plants. I seriously pull my bromeliads out and toss them because they just go insane and take over the garden. Might have to blog some photos of them and send you a link. 🙂 Both the orchid and the brom look very healthy. Have a great week.

    Orchid looks good!!!! And the other is a bromeliad. It should die after it blooms BUT produce a baby off to the side called a pup. Once that get going good enough you pull it off and plant it and start the whole pup to bloom to pup cycle again……! Hugs! deb
