    Since steeb put his up, almost done, I thought I'd post mine, just fully opened. A little washed out from the flash. Yummy fragrance!

    Very cool! I find it interesting to look at the center of the flower and see the little figure with the pink cape and hood. I wonder if artist who draw aliens and sci-fi figures look at orchids for inspiration?

    Cheers on a lovely bloom!

    I see things too.. but not aliens... hmmmm wonder if you spent too much time in the mater patch. LOL I see what you mean about the figure in the cloak, but when you are looking at the flower in person it's a little different. The whole flower is only about 1.25 inches.. I see a winged insect..

    It pains me to look at the bellinas, as I covet one so badly-can't find one yet, but I'm thrilled for you that yours is wonderful.
    Lovely!
