    Default Just Peachy

    This was the only new bloom waiting for me when I returned home. (although lots of others were still in bloom) The photo just doesn't capture the true color, it is truly peach colored, yellow to pale orange to light reddish, just like a ripe peach. Called Peach Parfait.

    Ohh Diane - it's gorgeous! I am DYING for an orchid with such beautiful colors. So far they are my favorite colors. Along with the purplish and blueish which seem so hard to find.... but one day these colors will be MINE :c) Beautiful!!!!

    Gorgeous sunset color, Diane!!! The blooms look luminescent! You must have a soft spot for these art-shade orchid flowers, eh!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Much better picture

    Here is a much better picture, the colors are true. Love 'art shade' blooms of any kind, as Hoa noticed....

    that's a nice photo of it too Diane... and the shape of it is really nice... the colours are hard to explain on these and I'm too artistically deficient to notice "art shades" so I'll just explain it as "purty pretty colours..."

    That is an unusual phal shade, and I'm just digging it!
