I found some crotch pretties in the yard.

The secret is….placing your non flowering orchids in the crotch. Of a tree. 
And it works. Over and over again. 
People love to give orchids as gifts, but they only bloom inside (for me) for so long…then outside they go to be one with nature. 
Well, the blooming is happening now…as it does several times a year. 
This one is in one of the oak trees along our driveway. 
Luckily we have several trees that do contain crotch space. 
MOST of our trees though are palm trees….
and you know what they say about palm trees: They are crotchless. 
Heathens. 

This one is in a large oak in the back yard….our family’s favorite tree. 

Also in our favorite oak tree in the back yard. 

They are neighbors!!
We had a nice weekend. Getting things done around the house and the Coach and I donated a lot of $ to Costco yesterday. {Our freezer/fridge is filled!} 
It’s getting hot ’round here…..but we haven’t melted yet…..but I’m stocking up on deodorant!
Did you find anything interesting growing in crotches lately?
Ok, that sounded bad.
Did you see any interesting sights this weekend?

  2. I would guess that it would work in any area as long as you have some humidity on occasion… But if you're expecting a frost and snow you'd probably have to cover them up.

  3. Do you leave them out all year round? Not sure if it would work in our area, I'd be worried they would be eaten by squirrels in the summer and killed by frost in the winter. Do critters bother your crotch orchids?
