    Default Vanda Robert's Delight 'Uva'

    this just started to open up this week, the color looks more blue in photo but it is a grape purple. I know the blooms will take a while to reach their size and fill out in color, but it is not quite looking like the photos I find if I do a search for 'Uva'. I'm happy and disappointed at the same time.Of course it picked the week to bloom when we set record high temps and now in the same week we are having record low temps.

    That's a beautiful vanda! One thing I like about vandas is that they have colors that you just don't see in other orchids. I love the color on yours.
