Inside-outside view

Many years ago my mother gave me an orchid in full bloom for my birthday. In the following years it flowered every now and again.

Once I placed the plant in such a way that the flowers were visible from inside the room. My husband said that it would be better if the plant will be positioned in such a way that the flowers could be seen from outside. Following his advice, I turned the plant so that the flowers faced the window.

To my great surprise in the following year my "birthday orchid" presented me with two flowers, which were arranged side by side at the same height. The nicest surprise however was that one of the pair of flowers faced inside the room and the other outside towards the window.

Thank you for this wonderful birthday gift.
