    Default Orchid needed a home

    While I was on my birthday orchid buy binge this poor little orchid was hiding in the back, looking all forlorn and sadly neglected. So I just had to rescue it and bring it home and hopefully next year it will reward me with many blooms. This is why I stay far away from animal shelters, imagine what would happen looking at all those animals in cages....

    No name tag, just another one of those tagless orchids at the grocery store. They really have to stop selling these waifs...

    Great orchid bloom. The purple edging makes this one really unique. IMO.
