    Default Odontonia Yellow Parade 'Alpine'

    I've had this orchid for 5 years with consistent late fall-early winter blooms. Each year, the individula flowers on the spike are pretty consistent in pattern BUT the pattern can change a bit from year to year. Its always a surprise as to where the spots will pop up from spike to spike. The bottom-most pic was taken this morning.

    Beautiful flower. Love that sunny yellow. In the bottom picture she looks like a smiley face.

    it's tipical odontoglossum crispum.Which is a good sized white with spots,that move from one flowering to another.For some reason or other crispum does it although the others dont.

    I like the color

    Very pretty, I like the top one the best. Just enough subtle orange and purple to accent the lovely soft yellow. Thanks for sharing!
