    Default Photos from a beginner.

    I purchased my first orchid in March and from the start it was a mystery. No blooms yet, just a few buds and no identification tag. It was tucked off to the side away from the other blooming species. I felt sorry for it so I rescued it! Since then, it has bloomed completely but I still don't know what I have. If anyone can identify it, that would be great.







    One morning, an interesting lighting effect took place with the sunlight. I managed to catch the bloom at just the right moment. From there I zoomed in to create interesting abstract images.

    Yep, even I recognized it as a phalaenopsis. Just don't know the name of it, thus, it's still a NOID (no ID).

    I just love the pretty pink patterns on the edges. Soooooooo very pretty!!

    It may be difficult to identify, but you might try checking with the place you got if from if it is an orchid nursery.

    I love her bright red lipstick .
