    I posted this flower earlier when only one was opened. Now the other bud has opened! This is the first time I have been able to keep these guys looking this good. Usually they get all spotted and ugly within a few days!

    VERY nice! Is the lighter color on the ends of the petals due to light reflection or do they "fade" to that paler color as one goes from the center to the ends?


    Hmmm, Howard should be going to Florida soon which means his greenhouse will be unguarded .... Ooops, did I say that out loud?

    Lovely blooms. Don't think it would like the warm weather here though.

    Those are amazing, I think it was a Lycaste that I saw at the North Of England Orchid society show that smelt of peaches, it was the most amazing scent and such an adorable compact plant, I love the colours on this one, and oh my here I go again, Carrie STOP it you cant have every orchid you see
