    Default Blooming now (Advent Calendar)

    Here are "special photos" that are included in a special topic that we do every year on the French forum: the Advent Calendar (each participant must post an existing bloom each day, if possible for the entire duration of Advent). For this calendar, we can unleash our imagination. Personaly, I do not like to distort the flowers.
    Unfortunately, no bloom from december 8 to december 17. And I'm not sure to finish the game !

    I hope you will enjoy our game.

    I gave this plant a personal clonal name 'Annette'. Annette was a very good friend who gave me this Laelia few months before her death.

    Thanks for sharing. And like you I'm not crazy about the distorted blooms but it makes it interesting.

    Bravo, Eric! What a cool idea. Love seeing the beautiful photos. And I really love Annette's Laelia. I have several orchids that I have named after dear friends both living and passed on. It is so nice to be reminded of our friendships each time they bloom.

    cheers,
    BD

    Some beautiful flowers Eric! I loved your artistic renderings! Were you using Photoshop?

    I got a chuckle out of the whimsical equestris-lion photo.

    I'm using GIMP.

    Thank you Bruce and Pavel.

    And next ones. Lack of time, the photos are less sophisticated.
