    Very nice, I like the contrast between those beautiful elegant blooms and the odd, "gangling" looking plant they belong to.

    Beautiful flowers. I tried one of those plants and they died a miserable death in my greenhouse.

    By the way, I do not want to be the one to point this out, but that first flower has some rather rude manners and is displaying an obscene gesture at the tip of its dorsal sepal

    Or perhaps its telling me "Take that! John. You killed my brother!"
