Thanks for keeping me going during these cold few weeks. Now that the orchids are back outside, here is what made it through the frosty temps:

Blc Anne Belle is still going and the fragrance is delightful.

This is Vanda Princess Blue X Kasem's Delight. It darkens with age. It was a difficult picture as I took it looking straight up with a bright white cloud background.

The Princess Blue is gorgeous.
In the end, only kindness matters.

Bree, I have no idea, sorry. I wish I could help. But they look nice!

Jim, it is really nice to see you being able to post your Orchids. They are beautiful and I am glad they don't show any sign of stress. Pretty Vandas!! Lovey dubby

Kathy, gorgeous Cyms. I love the lip on the 'Hui Lan'. Pretty 'Nora' and Laelia lundii looks nice. ( as I am tapping my foot for mine to progress)

My Ascda Peddler's Velvet Gold is now fully open.
Thumb of 2011-01-17/Ursula/4fb6d9 Thumb of 2011-01-17/Ursula/8c3c3a

A first, relatively large bloom on a very small Cattleya walkeriana 'Hawaiian Snow' x C. walkeriana var. flamea 'Divina'. That is a mouth full!! Big Grin
The color is fairly accurate, except the lip is a bit more fuchsia colored. The scent is lovely!

Cleisostoma arietinum is a newcomer, it was a Christmas present and it came in spike! Smiling The tiny, cute blooms measure ca. 6-7mm.
