    Default Phrag. Giganteum

    This phrag was also in bloom. I like the tiny spots on the white, inside of the pouch.

    The lip on that one looks so much like the little Dutch Boy's wooden shoes.

    On a side note, these are my father's favorite orchids. Every time he comes over to look at my collection, he asks me why I don't grow these. I do wish that I had more room for them--maybe some day!!

    Your pond is so beautiful and serene.

    Oh, no, Kfir. I grow in my little greenhouse. It gets way to cold and too hot here for growing outside. I just like to photograph the orchids on the rail of the deck. Gives a better background and light.
