Just in time for December's GBBD one of my orchids bloomed. I say "my" orchids, but the five orchids currently setting buds in my living room were all inherited in October from our long-time friend Judy Schwaemle. December's flowers are fading but this week a second orchid has opened. And two more should follow soon. They are bringing the touch of Spring all of us are dreaming about — and they continue to remind us of our gardening friend.
