    Default Paph. 'St. Swithin'

    Thought I'd share this with you guys & gals over there in USA... It's currently 12 midnight here in England as I post this, and I've been watching this beauty unfold it's first bloom during the course of today. It's still not opened completely and there's two more blooms in the making getting ready to appear. I'll keep you dated with its progress... It's looking remarkable already to me!

    Wow Roxy, that's really something for my taste. I have it with Paphiopedilums. Very nice! A quite splendid flower of Paphiopedilum St. Swithin. And thank you for the beautiful photos

    Thanx for your comment. I'm fairly new to Paph's but I guess I must be doing something right, as 4 of the 6 that I have recently purchased have all produced blooms. There's a 3rd bud developing on this St. Swithin and so I'm over the moon with its progress.
