Green Thumb Sunday

Turns out I don't have time to go take photos of oak trees today so I am doing Green Thumb Sunday from my own backyard, again. Here's three photos involving my bulbophyllum - each showing a closer view and #3 has a surprise in it!

A little closer..................................
Surprise! Look who has been living in my plant this summer. He is unhappy when I water so I try to be respectful of his home.

These next two photos are shocking. My succulents wreaths are now about 4 years old and falling apart. The last two years I have tried to add more moss, dirt, and even replant the ones that fall out but it is not working. HELP!


Time for the ever-dependable orchids........................



And the final Green Thumb shot is of my old birdbath. It's seen a lot of use in the past 3 years. About a year ago I moved it about 8 feet and I don't believe the birds like it as much. They don't realize it's actually safer for them.
