over three years ago i bought my first orchid.
it bloomed and bloomed from it's orginial shoot,
but once that shoot had it's lifespan, it went dormant.
it took 2 months for another shoot to grow
and while i was in ireland it started to bud!
yesterday morning, in the middle of a month of no sunlight,
the first blossom in three years opened it's face
to the little sunlight peeking through the clouds.
