It is very busy at Kew at the moment, both in theTropical Nursery and the Gardens: so I'm a little late in starting this thread. I'm guessing that cubits is still running ok and there are still people watching this thread!

This is the last of the Angraecum sesquipedale to flower this year and ,as you can see, it's past it's best.

Always wonderful, Richard. I deleted your first thread after seeing this. Hope you wanted that. The Grammangis ellissii is a new one for me as well as the bulbo!! So amazing! And great pics. I'm not sure if I would have noticed the aphid without your hint!

Richard, wonderful pictures! Lovey dubby
I am still looking for the Aphid, but I just adore the Dactylorhizas.
Amazing to see the Angraecum sesquipedale flowering now. Lots of blooms on that one!
The Grammangis ellissii and this Bulbo are also new for me.
Thanks so much!!

Wonderful!! Lovey dubby
I can see why you love the Embreea! Is it scented?

Thank you both. Yes the Embreea is scented,so I'm told ! Sadly I have a poor sense of smell which, for a horticulturist, can be quite frustrating !

Dendrobium chrysotoxum var. suavissimum.

This is the last picture for this month, I hope you are having a nice summer: it's hot ( 25-30c) and dry here in London, not the best weather to be working under glass!
