    Rather difficult subjects for my camera ; both are "pure yellow" without any colour blemish - to my eyes - alright, one of them is not so good at the moment, but that's a matter of focus, not colour perception, I think ( although the artist Monet did see rather funny colours when he needed a cataract operation - a thing not available in his day) but my camera sees red streaks in the hybrid, and a much duller yellow in the species, rather than the zingy, fresh lemony brightness I see in the species.
    I spent some time in Photoshop Elements trying to adjust the colours to nearer what I can see, and made a little progress ; then tried in Photoshop (10) but it is a long time since I used it , and whilst it is a wonderful tool for the photo craftsman, it does need an experienced hand to use it properly, and I am rusted away with this, so got no nearer to what I would have liked to show.
    The species - V. denisoniana is of course the one with 4 flowers ; never too many on this , in any of the several plants I have, but all of which came from the same flask which I bought back in the 90's. I have tried the brave tep of rubbing out the flower spike twice on one of the plants, trying to grow a stronger bigger plant , and maybe I can see that it now has rather larger leaves , and maybe can do better than this whenm I allow it to flower again... or am I kidding myself ? The much larger flowers in the hybrid are not of perfect shape - although not as bad - in the deformation of the two petals, as those I showed a few weeks ago. Perhaps these were subject to the same bane, but at a slightly earlier stage in bud development. I must also add that yellow and white flowers ( in the Vandas) seem much more prone to imperfection than the pinks and blues ; I see several pink and red flowered vandas with buds near to opening now , and I am crossing my fingers that they will open to perfect flowers showing that I am through and out of the other side of those problems...

    You always have the prettiest Vandas! Thanks so much for sharing. That yellow is stunning, particularly the denisoniana. Striking.

    Lovely. I like the 'clean' yellow on the denisoniana.

    I like them both Geoff, but that Vanda denisoniana is especially attravtive to me. I have been trying to find a good size, healthy looking denisoniana for some time now. AL
