    I was at the orchid show in Madrid las Friday. It was marvelous. I went there by train, so I couldn't buy as much as I'd haveloved to, but I couldn't resist this one.

    Love this one. The foliage is so pretty that I wouldn't care if it bloomed or not---well this close to Santa's visit I had best not lie. Let's face it we grow orchids for the blooms but it is nice this one gives a double treat. Like Angela I can hardly wait to see pics of the blooms.

    Thank you all for looking. I'll surely post pictures of the blooms if it blooms. The vendor told me the small buds might blast, but he said not to worry. Other buds would follow very quickly.

    Nice varigation. If the varigated areas were the pure white of the flowers, that would make for a truly lovely picture.
