    Default paph-o-rama... just a couple of noids

    picked these two up out of a salvage pile a while back for next to nothing... one had been chewed on by the vendor's dog and the other had suffered some other calamity that rendered it near worthless to the grower...lucky me! a little time and love and low and behold... they both have put out second, rather flawless,flowers (yeah sequential bloomers!)

    the one with all the purple and the speckles is actually quite large... i was really surprised how big it was... sadly, it had a third bud coming along behind it that has gone limp...
