    Cool Summer Blooms

    Hiiii Everybody! Oh my goodness I have missed you all. I am done with hip revision surgery and happy to say I am already walking with a walker, sometimes even with a cane already. It's been awhile so I thought I would do one long post of some of the summer bloomers. It's been raining here for over a week and more is on the way and my vanda section is blooming like crazy. I should be on more and more again. I will post the announcement for the up coming orchid show in October next so everyone can mark their calendars early this year.

    These two are gifts to myself for working so hard. My first trip out in the van by myself in months.

    My tall JVB is just amazing in bloom. The flowers are lasting quite a while too.

    Cool

    The first tessellate was grown in nearly full sunlight, while the one with the vibrant purple lip grew farther back under the eaves in a wetter shadier spot. What a difference!

    I could have added more...but i'll save some for later. The first plant was a surprise find at a local big box type store. It has already began to throw out another spike as well. Some vandas just love to bloom.

    Glad to hear you are on the mend!

    At least your orchids have been able to provide some sunshine during the recovery!
