How to slowly win a bet

orkidee_150301

Someone, I won´t mention the full name, but it begins with an M, made a bet with me some time back. “If this orchid ever blooms again, I will take you to a Very Fancy Restaurant to celebrate. My treat. But it´s dead, I tell you.”

It´s been a slow process, the poor thing has been down to only one leaf for a period, but dead? Nope. It just needed eight years to come back.

Guess I´ll be enjoying a Very Fine Meal pretty soon. 🙂
