    Default Pot. Love Avenue 'Serenade'

    What a wonderful surprise it was for me to find these beautiful blooms this morning when I visited my garden. To start my collection, I bought most of my plants at half price and in neglet, and have nursed them back to health. They are starting to bloom for me and I am very excited. It is really nice to see the blooms for the first time!

    Beautiful! If that's one that you nursed back to health, you did a great job. It looks like a very healthy orchid to me.

    Yes Jeff! I got it at a half price table where they throw the plants they have not selled, after the blooms have died. No one takes care of them and after a while they throw them to the garbage. It was very dehidrated and very sad and look at it now. It has been with me for about a year.

    Ohhh that is nice, great growing and purchase. Wish we could get sales like that down here more often, even if they are death door types.

    Beautiful flowers! Carmen if I'm not mistaken this plant has just thanked you for rescuing her by giving you this gorgeous bloom. Great job.
