    There's a very old song called Lavender Blue. As soon as I saw this gorgeous orchid the lyrics 'Lavender blue dilly dilly, lavender blue' came to mind. Thanks for the memories.

    Yeah--gotta love blue! If only more orchids came in blue . . . sigh! But then I'd really have an orchid problem.

    That is a beauty!
