    Smile Den. King Cobra in bloom

    This dendrobium arrived a couple months ago in a package deal that was too good to pass up. We watched patiently as the little circular flower spike developed it's blooms, never straightening. Now I can't wait to see it bloom normal as it has kept the tiny blooms almost from easy viewing. I had to do some interesting bends to get these pics. Also; I'll put in a pic or two of a baggie baby I've been nursing back to health for months. It rewarded me with two blooms, (one bud rotted before it could get out of sheath) and here they are. One obviously is newly opened and shows the difference 24 hours can make in a new flower.

    How about a pic of that den's spike, Connie? Can see it in the background but looks like it could be a hoot to see it all.

    My that's quite a fat lip on your catt.!
