I think Ursula is busy fighting dragons, not to mention a big electricity outage due to Sandy. What a mess that is and I expect it to continue for some time. Anyway, in her absence, I'll start the November thread. We came from The thread "Our Orchid blooms in October 2012" in Orchids forum. Please join us in enjoying the wonders of our November orchid flowers.

I'll start off with a new bloom on my Psychopsis Mendenhall alba 'Yellow Butterfly'.

I somehow lost the tag on this one so I'll have to call her a NOID Cattleya. Large flower with great floof.

Rhynchovola David Sander (formally Brassavola) is in bloom. This is the first flower with more buds coming. One of my favorites.

This is one of my Brassavola nodosas and folks around here call it the "Weaver" form. I'm not sure that is an official name but if it is, it should go in single quotes after nodosa. These are very fragrant after dark and so are known as "Lady of the Night" orchids.

B. nodosa is one of the parents of Bc. Little Stars, which is also fragrant after dark. My plant is loaded with blooms now.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/8b7c97 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/b0d216

C. Bicolor 'Lines' AMAOS X L. undulata is still in good form.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/45ef72 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/5b5059

Blc. Hawalian Leopard 'Mai Ling' has opened two new blooms.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/a45790 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/03a54a

And Blc. Golden Tang has done the same.

The Queen of Floof, Blc. Chia Lin 'New City', is back. What a great fragrance.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/dabcff Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/f3271e

Lc Nippon 'Livinza' isn't quite open yet but is looks so cool I just had to take a picture. I'll post again when she is fully open.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/63c398 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/88fffa

Looking over at Vanda row, I have two big ones that are fully open.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/f1d844 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/5039d1

The red one is Vanda Mae Sai X Vanda Kenji that I got in Apopka a few years ago.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/de1b41 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/8b7df9

The other is the one I bought a couple of weeks ago, Vanda Boonchoo X Vanda Thonglor Sand. It has two big spikes, both in bloom.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/cfb09f Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/8ec532

Miltassia Aztec 'Toni' keeps opening new flowers as the old ones fade.

Lc. Hua Yuan Angel has a couple of new blooms.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/e8d802 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/22c367

Epic. Volcano Trick Fireball continues to open blooms along its spike.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/12d09c Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/4e59ef

And three plants worth of "dancing ladies".
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/294d76 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/1817d2

Here is a look at the second of two spikes on Bllra. Pacific Treasures 'Everything Nice'.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/e6202d Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/da340d

There is this beautiful white NOID Dendrobium blooming up at the top of the OC. I had to get a ladder to get it down to take a picture.
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/a6799f Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/e9de1d

I'll leave you tonight with another big Catt that I have had for years and she blooms in November like clockwork. This is Lc. Irene Finny ( Irene's Song X Marie's Song).
Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/462510 Thumb of 2012-11-02/hawkarica/871f74

That's it. Welcome to November.

Fabulous, Jim. We are on the plane to Salt Lake tomorrow to meet our new granddaughter, so will try to check in from there.

Hope Ursula's power gets back soonest, and also that I have some new flowers to show when I get back.

One of the gas stations up the road was able to get a new load of gasoline! It's the first really good news this week! Our area is otherwise still untouched, hoping we will see some activity today!

Fabulous pics and plants, Jim. I have several 1 1/2 yr old, Lc. Mari's Song 'CTM 217' HCC/AOS plants but they are still too young to bloom. This is a pic of what I hope to one day enjoy.

Nice start to the month Jim! So many great blooms there!
and Bree, I love your Den, what a pretty color indeed!
Ursula, fingers crossed that you start to see some progress in your neighborhood soon.
Although it's great news that you have some gas near by.

Looks good Ken!

Posting with the help of the friendly humming generator - Ornithophora radicans is one happy camper again this year, the clump measures 2 feet !! across. The flowers have a nicely sweetish scent. The closer-in views show the sheer density of the spikes. And yes, there is a coconut shell in that clump.

Thumb of 2012-11-03/bree/0de15c heres what my Irenes Song is ment to look like once it flowers. I have seen this picture before though on the net so maybe the seller just pinched the pic.
Thumb of 2012-11-03/bree/26a687 and what my maris Song should look like. Looks like Robert Strait.

Thanks, Kathy. Things are looking and smelling good in the OC.

Ursula, that is what I call a specimen plant. It's an absolute beauty. Congrats! Thumbs up

Blc. Goldenzelle 'Frank Smith' opened today. The flower is huge. I bought it from Jim Krull at Krull-Smith Orchids up in Apopka a couple of years ago.
