    Cool Blc. Volcano Blue #2 - First Blooming

    I have had this plant for a few years and was beginning to think it would never bloom. Apparently it has decided it is time and to my surprise today a second set of blooms had popped open. I hadn't noticed the second spike at all. I just love that kind of surprise!

    As orchids go, this is considered "blue". And I love the sparkly quality to these flowers.
