Somehow Thoughtful Thursday completely passed me by. But that hadn’t stopped me in my quest to pay it forward this last week.
During the working week I sit on one of two desks – I spend half the week in one office, half in another. Somehow I have managed to acquire an orchid on each desk. I think they have both ended up on my desk from ladies who have gone on maternity leave.
The orchids have previously flowered, and were looking a bit on the sad side. I have tried feeding and watering them, but what they really needed was to be repotted. So I sent Ben out for a couple of repotting kits and got stated.
The small picture is the before of that orchid, the picture on the left is the other orchid after I had repotted it. Thankfully I was first in on these days (I didn’t do them on the same day) so I didn’t feel too daft taking the orchids to the kitchen to tidy up, trim and re-pot 🙂
Hopefully they will be a bit happier now. It would be great if I could encourage them to grow again 🙂
What have you done to pay it forward this week? Have you repotted an orchid and got it to flower again? Tips gratefully received 🙂
