Last fall, I was surprised by a magnificent white orchid. From friend and fellow blogger, Cass from That Old House. I adore orchids and this was a beauty!

So as a thank you for the orchid, I invited Cass for tea . . . with the orchid as a centerpiece!
And the orchid lived the rest of the fall and into the winter with the wonderful white blooms. Orchids are long blooming plants which is why I like them so. And taking care of them properly, you can get them to rebloom.
Once the blooms of the "Cass Orchid" fell, I cut back the bloom stem, kept the plant in the proper window and watered and fed.
And now in August . . .

The "Cass Orchid" is blooming once again. I get so excited when I see the first bloom spike appear and I start in on a feeding regimen. And as the spike grows . . . and then buds appear . . . and soon the first flower.
It is pure excitement for an orchid lover.
The "Cass Orchid"
Has a beautiful bloom -- it's so white.
|Loads of buds means lots of blooms|
And there are lots of additional buds which means that there should be a long bloom time before the orchid is finished. The rest of summer and a good part of fall.
|The guest room table is the perfect place for it.|
It looks good in the tin toleware cachepot bought ages ago from Source Pierre because it looked more expensive than it was. And it's perfect in this corner of the guest room. And even though it is in the guest room, I do make sure to stop by each and every day and bask in it's beauty.
It's Monday and I'm sharing my reblooming orchid with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.
