    Smile Paphiopedilum spicerianum 2010

    This paphiopedilum was a gift from a lady in my orchid society. Sadly, she passed away last year after a long battle with cancer. She left me two beautiful paph orchids from her collection. They were delivered to me about a month after her death with a hand written note wishing me a bright future. This orchid remains pretty small, but reminds me of Irene, her kindness, and her love for green orchids. I am so happy it bloomed at this time of the year. She was always such a kind lady. Here's to you my friend. Please enjoy.

    Very beautiful paph, and touching story. I had one two (Paph. spicerianum) that I left behind when I moved to Australia. The one I had was given to me by a friend as well, who fortunately is still with us.
