|Brassia Rex Christine ~ my most 'exotic' orchid
When they're not in bloom, they're the ugliest things. Or, so I thought.
|Gangly stems stretch to the sun as new buds begin to take shape.
|Orchids keep me company while I'm washing dishes.

Which brings me to this week's Freebie ~ a book I absolutely positively DO NOT want to give away. (I promised I would give it away, therefore I have to.) I learned a few new tricks by reading this book.
From basic care to DIY orchid soils to creating an orchid hospital when some of them require life support. (Plus, some hand holding when it's time to throw that baby into the compost pile and start all over again. :)
I have one copy of this book to give away. Please leave a comment if you'd like to be in the drawing.
* Better Homes & Gardens gave me a collection of plant-related books to read, review and give away.
Hence, the 'Friday Freebie' thing, which will continue with something new for the next few weeks. If you're not big Orchids, pop over next Friday to yak about Herbs.
CONGRATULATIONS TO LAST WEEK'S WINNER: Melospiza. I'll be mailing you the Yes! You Can! canning and preserving book. Just as soon as you send me your address. :))
