This specie of orchid that's grown on the bark of the paper tree, a legacy of the former owners of the house had shot a stem and is flowering! I will research for the name- wait till the orchid exhibits come back and i will get the name for you. There used to be a cream and yellow flowering ones and those flower shoots are out, one each per plant and I do have several.
My spider plant had also thrived under the shade- I can propagate it now into several plants.
It is the last month of winter and in September it will be spring here. I prefer the wintry months as it reminds me very much of my hometown in Baguio. But it will be gone soon.
