We came from here
The thread "Our Orchid blooms in December 2018" in Orchids forum

Happy New Year!! Raising my glass with a toast!!

I was about to post the first two Orchids of the New Year and I realized that I started out the January 2018 thread with the identical Orchids, Brassavola Little Stars and Barkeria melanocaulon in bloom. Perhaps there is something to be said about a nice and steady repeat performer?
So here it goes -

Guarthroleya Judy Congdon is almost done opening. This one is a real sprawler, it grows out in all directions. Last week it slipped off that little stepstool, fell down on me and dropped a couple of petals on the spike to the right. I was almost too scared to pick it off the floor. But the damage was fairly light, whew. This Orchid was a little seedling from the Hoosier Orchids going-out-of-business sale. I really liked their plants!!

My old Dendrobium Luz Del Dia 'Kiilani' usually blooms the whole indoor season somewhere on that plant,

Awesome show Ursula! But you've jumped the gun by 3 hours! Its only 9pm.... Rolling on the floor laughing Time for more eggnog (well, more brandy than eggnog - the eggnog is just an excuse).

So far, only one big BOOM. Toshi the Terrible Terrier (he's a 15 lb Jack Russell) shot straight up (from a sound sleep) and then wanted to go kill it. He's bigger on the inside than the outside.

I saw a couple flower just opening in the GH this afternoon. Photos later...

Great Show Ursula, just a Great Show!!!
There is a good deal to be said for reliable bloomers as you can always count on them. When it is their time to bloom, there they are in full bloom! Just like old friends stopping by for a visit.
I love the Little Stars and the Peddler's Velvet Gold!! I tip my hat to you.

Sorry Daisy, it was 12 o'clock on the East coast! Not my fault that you guys are dragging behind! Rolling on the floor laughing

It is 54 degr F here this morning, but the temp is going to drop into the forties. I sure hope we continue to have a mild Winter.

Such gorgeous orchids, Ursula. I'll bet the fragrance from that magnificent Little Stars is overwhelming! Love the color of the Peddlar's Gold.

Yikes, Gina! 10 miles?? We're doing well to do a 2mi. walk every second day.

Happy New Year to all, we had a fairly civilized celebration in the neighborhood last night and the fireworks were done by 12:30 thank goodness. Last year some fool kept firing them off until 2am.

My anonymous weeper in the living room is now blooming on upright stalks, with paler flowers. The weather is going to have to take the blame cause I sure can't figure out why it's done this. The first two stalks were bent downwards in bud, and the flowers opened nicely facing outward and down. Now this?

I am so happy that it was a very quiet night! Maybe a couple of random gunshots after 10pm, but it was very quiet overall. Rolling on the floor laughing
Compared to Florida this was like being in a baby's cradle! If Jack and Rosie weren't spooked, you know it was quiet.

A spectacular start to the month!
Our fireworks continued on until 2:00 and they were quite close by.
Elaine, your NOID looks familiar but no name is springing to mind. I wonder if it's one of Rafael 's unregistered crosses?
I've got a couple of new ones this morning.

Lindsey I just think that the Coral Gold is an incredible yet beautiful little hybrid. Incredible because of the golden yellow markings along the midribs of the sepals and petals. Those are very unusual!
The lip is a great compliment to the rest of the flower. Very beautiful.

The Always Dream has to be a very large flower of intense color. But that lip should be patented! We could occasionally stick it onto another flower, like a lip-ec-tomy! If their lip doesn't measure up we can improve the flower with a lip from Always Dream.

Love the Pacific Rainbow with those neatly striped petals. And Whoa! that Volcano Queen is an eye popper, and all that floof!

We have our little Sarasota show here on Friday - Sunday and I'm going with a list this year.

Ursula, thanks for the nice start to 2019 and the accompanying show. Lindsey, I really like your Coral Gold. What wonderful color!
As a New Year treat for me, my Rhyncholaelia digbyana opened for me last night.

Always a stunner Jim, always.
When you look up and down the Cattleya Alliance, you do not see any other species with a lip like that.
And then there is the fragrance, intoxicating, overwhelming, sweetly citrus. Is there a more spectacular species around???

Well, I don;t have a bloom (yet) but I just found a BUD. This is Paph. stonei x adductum var. anitum Black Magic SM/TOGA (I am not certain if that last bit is part of the name or not)
