See the Orchid plant? Pretty aren't they?
Well, the orchid leaves are real... but the flower part is not.
After my orchid stopped blooming, I went to Michael's and picked up a couple of Orchid flowers and stuck them in the pot with the leftover leaves.
I think I paid 5 or 6 dollars for the two stems.
(They were on sale for 50% off, but I was prepared to use my 40% off coupon if they weren't on sale.)
I've noticed that the stalks remaining from the previous blooms has a little growth on it, so I'm assuming new flowers are on their way, but until then, I'll enjoy the fake.
I think they look very real. Don't you?
So, have I inspired you to "fake it" until you make it?
Sorry I couldn't help myself ;)
