January 10

This orchid lives happily at my kitchen window, where it produces a flower every year. A few weeks ago I accidentally closed the window on the new flower stalk, chopping off the growing tip. I wasn't sure if it would recover, but it seems to be sprouting anew from the end. Who said orchids were hard to grow? This one's unstoppable!

Lovely little drawing - I've never grown an orchid - I don't really have suitable windows sills for indoor plants - all too hot or too dark
