    Default My beautiful Holiday Blooms

    I received several beautiful orchids for Christmas from grandchildren.
    They are included in this picture taken on my bloom shelf. I had quite a time fitting them all on one shelf. This shelf is in front of a window but I had to pull the shade to get a good picture.

    In the front are 3 Oncidium Twinkles, white, red and yellow. Up high is a Oncidium Butterfly Orchid. It is so tall that I had to let it fall way forward to get it in the picture. On the right in the back is the deepest purple phal that I have ever seen. These are the ones from the grandchildren. There are also 8 different paphs, 1 phrag, 2 phals and a small howeara that were already in bloom for me. I have to more phals close to opening and one more paph in bud.

    I am so thrilled with all of them!

    Your grandchildren have done good, Katie! As they should!

    The deep purples in that Phal are amazing, but he whole display is stunning. A lovely complement of colors and genera! Nice haul!
