After a year of fighting thrips on my orchids, and not having any healthy blooms to enjoy,
at last, I think I have won (and the good news, not with serious chemicals).
I diligently used citrus flavored dishwashing soap and Neem oil alternating.
Both were mixed in a gallon of water.
I also used a blend of 409, alcohol and water once or twice.
So, this is what is blooming today.
When I wasn't stewing about my orchids, I did have some fun with my art
Some of those backgrounds I love to do got cut into bits and mounted on a canvas.
I had envisioned something more exotic but as sometimes happens, those great ideas just don't work
in reality. This reminds me of the colors of Hawaii
This background really looks like a shawl.
I am not sure where I am going with this, yet.
It may reappear in a few weeks completely revised.
Playing around with these things is half the fun.
After all, it's only paper, right?
Wishing everyone a beautiful Spring
and praying for peace and good will.
