    This is sort of like a breech birth. The bloom is almost upside down, but I'll keep it.

    Wow, I like it. The soft violet color and the little freckles are lovely.

    Form isn't the greatest but I like the freckling and that subtle blush on the sepals is very nice.

    I love the spots of color on this orchid bloom. Too bad it got messed up as the bud opened.

    Love the spots and dots. I find that sometimes moving them around (before the flower is open)will cause the bud to do topsie-turvies.
