    Default Phalaenopsis amabilis, Indonesia's national flower

    I broke the whole spike as I was taking photos.

    Found up to the Philippines, from Queensland in Australia, Indonesia, and New Guinea.

    Ouch! Was it all blooming? I really want to shoot myself when that happens. Luckily the plant shrugs it off!

    Lovely photo!

    I hate it when that happens! I have done it soooo many times.

    Beautiful bloom though!

    Cheers!

    I agree with Phillipe, I've come back for several looks too. Lovely, clean, crisp and graceful.

    Default Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.

    Errrr...I am afraid you're driving me to better my posts everytime. I am seriously thinking of going up to the mountains to examine firsthand what the small nurseries have in stock.

    Maybe I am on the brink of lunacy because of this obssession?

    Nelson - we are all CRAZY about our 'chids! You just have better photography skills than the rest of us. I can't imagine what you might find in those mountain nurseries... but I bet we'll love the pictures of what ever you get!!

    Did you hear that? Do you see what she's doing???
    (and they call me e-veal...)

    She's encouraging (more) obsessive behavior.

    Bad! Bad Diane!!!

    Let poor Nelson be. There might be snakes up in those mountain jungles. Or spiders...or even gasp! worse!

    On the other hand, Nelson, I'd love to see what they're growing up there. You should seriously consider a trip. Don't forget your mosquitoe repellant...

    Why Nelson be as twisted as the rest of us??? Especially since he lives where he can grow these beauties in his yard.

    I'm gonna go sulk now......
