    Default Rhynchostylis coelestis, the last of the season

    Hello all, my Rhynchostylis coeslestis is blooming with two huge spikes this year. The Rhynchostylis year starts with the giganteas blooming from late January to early March, followed by the retusas which bloom from end April to early July and now finally the last of the season the coelestis blooms from July till August. This is a very beautiful blue, again hard to capture using a camera. My sister will try once again with her other camera, till then here they are to enjoy. The third picture in the greenhouse comes close the most to the natural color I think. This photo was taken by my mother using a very basic point and shoot camera.
