Learning to look after the orchid

I have always loved plants and flowers and one of the presents that I received for my birthday in 2015 was a beautiful orchid. Of course, it was described to me and after everyone had gone home and the night had arrived, I tiptoed up to my new friend and took a few minutes to get familiar with her.

My new orchid had two flowers on it and some thick leaves. It was tall and a bit slender but I particularly loved the small flowers. Before my friend, Gabriella, had left that day she gave me a quick lesson on how to look after my orchid. She told me to place two ice cubes in its pot. One on each side of the pot and to do it once weekly.

My beautiful orchid is very well and alive today. I tiptoe up to her pot every day and I run my fingers gently along her leaves. I know what orchids look like because of my former vision so I can use my memory to help me along.
