I haven't written in awhile, but I though I should share this with you.
We received an orchid from dh's dad as a house warming present a couple of years ago ... and it was beautiful. I hadn't been able to get it to bloom again .. but I repotted it earlier this summer, and gave it a wash of fertilizer .. and guess what .. it's bloomed! Here is a picture of it as the first flower opened :)
Isn't it beautiful?
