    Talking Dendrobium Anosmum var Superbum

    Okay, so I didn't get tons of flowers....but wow do they smell good. Next year hopefully I'll do better! This was bought in bud about two months ago and I have trotted it in and out through-out the cold spells. Thank Goodness no more moving them...for awhile anyways!

    I love the little hairy things....

    This was the first flower and deformed abit. You could smell the sweet sweet smell before it even opened all the way and now the whole corner of the porch smells wonderful from them.

    Stevied...if you'd told me 10 years ago i'd be raising orchids on my front porch I'd have called you some very not nice names. lol It is pretty much my dream life come true....

    And about the "hairy" comment...I like hairy things! If I didn't i'd have never married my childrens father!!! lol We swear he's related to Sasquatch....

    Oh Connie, you and LL are cracking me up! The bloom is beautiful. I hope you get those three or more canes in bloom next year. It has such a dark and rich color. Beautiful.

    Cheers,
