    Stunning Bruce! I have no slipper orchids at all, but our local city park is clearing out their orchid collection (claiming they lack sufficient staff & volunteers to care for them) and they are offering them to our OS. There are a few Phrags being offered, two of which (Sedenii & Eric Young) are somewhat similar (although not quite so nice, perhaps) and, although I was not planning to seek any, after seeing these photos, I'm maybe changing my mind!

    Cheers, Rob
