Last year I got carried away at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show and bought some tropicals like this Epidendron. I meant to bring it in before it got really cold but good intentions have a way of going bad. Anyway when I finally brought it in it was mostly black with just a few green leaves. I pruned off the dead growth and found green stems and the few leaves you see.
Will it come back? Stay tuned.

I've talked about my cymbidiums and their struggle in the north. This one has been my best performer both down south and up here. These buds popped up before Christmas and developed through some near freezing nights. I thought this was the only plant but I find I have two more with budstalks. One is the same variety and the other is one I got from helping someone repot orchids from her mothers San Francisco garden.
More later because there is not much else going on garden wise.
