    Pretty, BD! Do you have it in the pot to keep it contained?

    Thanks, Paul. Yes, but not to keep it contained, but because that is just how I planted it. I left it sitting right where it is in the photo this winter and thought it would surly be dead, but it came back better than last year. The pond it is in is a concrete fountain/ waterfall we built. It could not live in there without a pot. It would wash away.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Thanks! Well, if it stops raining tomorrow when the sun is up, I will photograph it for you Ron. LOL. It is a mess right now and needs major clearing around it.

    That's absolutely beautiful, Bruce!

    I wish the coerulea orchids were that vibrant!
