Always at Your Service
by Colleen Rochette
Please allow me to introduce you to my frisky feline friends, Uni and Ora. This inseparable sister duo is always chirping alongside, ready and willing to lend a paw with any green-thumb task. They are particularly fond of leaf inspection, dirt mixing and water applications.
On a side note, I am not sure if Uni and Ora are actually interested in my orchid collection. Sometimes I believe that they only care about my plants because they see how much I care? Or maybe it is the routine ruckus that is regularly associated with the upkeep of my orchids? Anyway, their devout affections are quite comical to me. I also take much relief in the absence of destruction, despite the infinite amount of energy that is constantly being expelled by this 18-month-old pair. Ah, my little orchid helpers.

Tall to small. Yep, looks good to me!

Quality control at it’s finest.
