Epidendrum peperomia

Thank for your comments at the end of the September at Kew thread. As I mentioned, I had a spell in hospital but feel much better now after having a week recuperating in sunny St Ives in Cornwall. It's a beautiful place,worth a quick google. I am pleased to be back at work as I have missed my orchids! Here are pictures of some of the blooms waiting to greet me on my return.

Ohhhhhh. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby
Richard, I am very glad you are feeling better.
Your pictures are gorgeous! Love the Bulbos, nice detail on the medusae.
About the little Angraecum aporoides - are the blooms a bit larger than those on distichum?
Lovely Rodriguezia decora and I am just sniffing the great scent of the Stan wardii!

Thank you so much for posting!!

Thank you all your comments are much appreciated.
Ursula I would say there is not much in it regarding the blooms of the two Angraecums, maybe A. aporoides a tad bigger.
