A Problem No One Expected COVID to Cause

It’s that time of year again.  What time, you ask?  December/January is when my orchids start to rebloom.  Only, this year, there’s a bit of a problem.  The office has a couple of orchids decorating large common spaces, but in our work area (about 30 people) there are no plants other than what individuals bring in.  So for several years now, my orchids have decorated the area for months while in bloom.

Only, now, there’s only 2 of us in that area – the rest are work-from-home.  And the person other than me is in an office so not out in the larger work area of desks.  Occasionally, two others come in, but are not there on a regular basis.

Looks like I’ll be enjoying my crop of orchids all on my own this year.  There is little point to hauling them all into the office if there is no one there to see them.  I’ll likely take one for myself, and maybe one for the other person.  One of the “occasionals” might like to take one home with her while it blooms, but mostly the orchids will only be for me.  Which is nice, but I only see them evenings and weekends, so…

Ah well, there are greater problems caused than this.  I’ll just have to muddle through.
