I love this orchid, which was a housewarming gift from Ben’s aunt and uncle. It’s a common Moth orchid, or phalaenopsis, and its flowers are so lovely. The petals are fuchsia and shimmery – they remind me of eyeshadow (I know, I’m such a girl). Plus, I even made it bloom again, which is something I’ve never managed to do with orchids.
As such, I was a little peeved when I noticed that one of the flowers has been nibbled. “Geez,” I thought. “So much for winter at least being a time when you can relax your plant-pest-patrol duties!”
I got over it quickly, though. I mean, Schnoopette really puts up with a lot from us (see below). She has to take her revenge for prior humiliations when she gets a chance!
