Cream Orchid

I bought this rather nice greeny-cream (almost a Hellebore colour) with pink blush orchid this morning in our local Waitrose. It had been sitting there looking forlorn, very dry, very tired and with a couple of wilted flowers for the last 3 weeks. I thoiught to ask if they would therefore sell it to me at half price. To my surprise they agreed.

 

Having brought it home, taken off the wilted flowers and given it a good water it already looks 100% better. It has only these three flowers and one or two buds to come. But it is rather pretty and who knows I may be able to nurse it back into flowering properly next year.
