Orchid Flowering a Second Time

I bought this orchid plant at the beginning of January this year and posted a pecture then http://365project.org/susiemc/365/2017-01-04
It flowered for several weeks and then all the flowers finally dropped off. Recently it produced new flower buds and look at it now!! I'm amazed. I've never had orchids before.
Beautiful :)

They are beautiful. I have a lovely purple one that my daughter gave to me for Mother's Day. I fear that it may have a long slow death. I'm yet to be able to keep this variety alive :(

@bigmxx @beryl @happysnaps Thank you ladies. I was really surprised when it started to produce buds again. I've never had orchids until recently but they seem to be very easy (or they thrive on neglect!)

@netkonnexion Thank you Damon. I couldn't find a good place indoors to take the picture and do the flowers justice so I took the pot outside and stood it on a bank with bushes behind.

@merrelyn Don't give up on it Merrelyn. I've never had orchids until recently so I don't anything about them except what friends have told me. They don't seem to need much attention at all. I think the key thing is to find the right spot in the house, with the right amount of light and possibly humidity. I've discovered that the kitchen windowsill is good in my house.

@bkbinthecity Thank you

@rosiekind Thank you Rosie. Yes they are good value. I often have to stop myself from buying them, well until we've moved house anyway :)

@cruiser I'm very new to orchids too Chris and I can only think they must be easy to look after.

@chimfa Perhaps you're right Jane. I have another one which is about to flower for the second time.
