    Default Wild Phal

    This little NOID is growing on my Date Palm, it doesn't get much attention but it seems happy. Gave me 2 little spikes this spring.

    I see you're also trying to keep the spirit of Xmas alive judging by the lights. LOL

    Phal can't be too unhappy though "it doesn't get a lot of attention"

    Great pic Cin. I love to see orchids in their natural (recreated) environment (of course with added xmas lights). Are those leaves ok, they look a little funky, but that might just be the light in the picture?

    It also keeps the palm trees warm in case those rogue Florida cold blasts arrive.

    It is always the "neglected" ones that seem to pop up in our faces and seem to say "HA! Beat that you pampered-greenhouse-sheltered orchids!"

    It is lovely. I wish I could see your place some time Cin. From all of your photos, I bet it is a paradise.

    It IS a paradise, BD. Cin has orchids growing on every tree; her whole yard is a tropical garden. It's so lovely and welcoming! This pretty little phal was just about to open when we visited in March. It's one of my favorite color patterns - white with red lips. This phal reminds me of my mom; her creamy white skin and 'Love That Red' lipstick. Thanks for the pic, Cin!

    You flatter us way to much Tami but thank you for the kind words. What a wonderful simile
    of your mom and the orchid.
