    This is a local greenhouse to me. MAnaged by a real nice man and his son. I go over there when I have free time and help him repot. Anyway I took some pics of some of the things he has in bloom to share with you all.

    Very nice photos, Forrest! Thanks for taking so many. The army is pretty hillarious! That's my kind of army!
    Um, what's the pic after the vanda? I like that one. Very much actually.

    That is Dendrobium tobaense. I think the canes on those can get up to a little over a foot tall IIRC, but these ones were blooming on about 6 inch canes, lol the flower was almost as big as the cane, very nice indeed.
