Yvonne use to work with me. Due to budget cuts, she was "laid off." When she was cleaning out her desk, I asked her about her plants. They were on the windowsills. Both were orchids, but only one had bloomed. All winter Yvonne shook her head over the one that wasn't blooming and said she was going to throw it out. I never wanted to because it was still a vibrant green healthy plant. Anyway, she left both plants.
This morning I was pleasantly surprised to see that it had not one, but two beautiful flowers.
And it was almost trashed!
