Ursula, Paph. Pedro's Moon 'Perky' is positively glowing! What a beautiful shade of yellow. Nice photo. I tip my hat to you.

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' started its flowering season. I never do as well with this plant as others, I should be seeing 16 spikes or more. Perhaps they are still coming.... one can dream? At least the plant is healthy.

re Pedro's Moon - thanks! It was just sitting there looking so pretty in the sunshine and needed another picture.

re the Cirrh EA 'B' It is one of my older plants and it actually is a true division of the large plant which garnered the FCC/AOS.

My Cattleya mossiae 'Campo Grande' x labiata opened another spike.

As far as Paph Pedro's Moon, Pedro is saying, "If I have only one life, let me live it as a blonde!"

DP is definitely a silly romp! And I left the theater light as a bubble. I agree about Netrebko. But enough of opera talk!
Janice those two are wonderful! I've been waiting to see real pics of Slc. India Rose which I always notice online!!

December 2nd and already tons of beautiful flowers!
Dendrochilum javieri is really nice Ursula, and is now on my wish list!
Janice, both of those flowers are terrific! I have a soft spot for the warm tropical colors...especially with the
cold temperatures setting in!
Kathy, I had a nice surprise the other day..I was staring at my plants willing and wishing them to grow and bloom..
I noticed one of the tags of the baby plants I got last year.. Blc. George King ' Southern Cross'..which was at the top
of my wish list after you posted those beautiful flowers!

Jumellea comorensis is starting its Winter bloom.
This one is a real sprawler and loves daily rain-showers. The plant had been growing a lot of fresh new roots this Fall.

Gongora armeniaca is opening some spikes - this little Orchid doesn't need a premium sunny spot, lower light conditions are fine, and it doesn't want to dry out.

Hard to believe that Jumellea comorensis ever started out in that pot!!! What a happy plant!
That's a very showy Gongora. Almost looks like a Stanhopea!
