    Smile Updated! Pretty little flowers

    This is my newest orchid (the wilsonara), with 35 yellow/spotted flowers. It has a branching spike that's about 3 feet tall. It also has a slight fragrance that reminds me of some sort of perfume.

    Hope you enjoy!
    (Sorry I don't have the best picture quality.)

    Lily, is that Golden Afternoon 'Rich Yellow'? Just curious. It looks great, whatever it is.

    Yes. It is Golden Afternoon 'Rich Yellow'. Nice guess! So this means it's a common variety, right?

    I'm also trying to attach another picture of a close-up, but it's not working. I'll try again later.

    Nah...the only reason I recognized it is because I have one. I don't think it's especially common.

    This is another close-up picture of the flowers. Notice the strange mutated flower with the extra petals. How weird!

    That mutated one looks about like I felt earlier--waving tentacles around....

    Nice photos, Lily.
