Is four years too long to wait for an orchid?



This morning while taking my morning coffee walk in the garden before going to work, I notice some yellow color in a corner of my yard. After some investigating I could not believe my eyes there behind the Spanish moss and attach to my Frangipani tree a small orchid plant that I attached to the tree four years ago had bloomed. After four years of no flowers I got three, I even forgot it was there. The flowers are not much to write home about (compare to other orchids) but after four years I was very excited to find it.
What is blooming in the garden this week?
White Begonias
Angel’s Trumpet (is rain in the forecast)

I would be terribly excited as well! I've got a lilac bush here that has bloomed once in 13 years...
