keeping vigil

Floppy was born today. Sheeba needed a lot of help learning how to be a good mother, which Kali miraculously provided. Here she is keeping vigil.

I was so surprised when this orchid bloomed again a few months ago, it really was on the brink, having not been watered for many months, probably over half a year.

I cut it back, taking off the old flower stem, following some instructions i found on the internet, and put it in my daughters room, which is mostly north facing. I only watered it once, maybe twice a month and was rewarded just around the new year with some new buds.

I have been using it as a drawing model when the weather is inclement.
