    Just snapped these shots in the GH this afternoon. I missed the first bloom on this one. It was already dried up. Anyway, I hope you like it.

    Cheers,

    Oops! I cut off the petals with the camera. They reach the pot, about two hands. The bloom is actually darker, but I used a flash to take the photo. IT was late afternoon and I could not get a good shot without the flash.

    Thanks for all the nice comments!

    Cheers,

    Very nice, Bruce!

    Those lovely blooms are guilting me into watering now... I think my Paphs are on strike until I step up my watering schedule.

    I thought I'd spend an hour or two this morning getting the garden in shape (we're actually having a spring this year!) and I was out for 4 hours. It's advil time, and orchid time!
