    I am sure I have shown this before, earlier this year ; however I wanted to show it again because it has been in flower since February - appeared in Shows in every month since then - and the same flowers are still good. Maybe better tha before . Amazing !

    astonishing, in some ways very strange flowers. but also somehow of exotic beauty. I didn't know it until now. The blue lip with the light veins makes it especially interesting. Is the lip divided horizontally in two?

    This shape is called “antelope” for obvious reasons. there is a whole group of species loking like this - antennatum etc . No, the lip is one piece, it is just the markings.
