an orchid at the office – update

Last month we shared some pictures of an orchid that had bloomed some time back and then recently bloomed again at my wife’s place of work.

This plant continued to bloom and looked very nice.  Thus we now share these latest images of this orchid with a persistence for life.

The orchid is framed by the view through the office tower window (on the 29th floor).





Another view the same morning showing more of the plant.

Six mornings later, we see that the bud seen in the last image has blossomed out.

15 days later, we see the remarkable persistence of this flowering plant.  The window shade is down on this sunlit morning.
