Time for a new monthly thread. We came from The thread "Our Orchid blooms in May 2013" in Orchids forum
Please join us in posting your June blooms here. Ursula is spending the weekend at her lovely property in Pennsy so asked me to start the new thread. Hopefully she will return with some wonderful pictures to share.

All of these pictures were taken yesterday afternoon.

Let me begin with this large Brassia Rex 'Walomao Spotless FCC/AOS. The flowers are huge and pure yellow.
Thumb of 2013-06-01/hawkarica/33ed2e Thumb of 2013-06-01/hawkarica/ec4b02

Moving from screaming yellow to screaming red, this is Epi. Pacific Sizzle 'Flameout' X Pacific Pepper 'Mulligans'.

Thanks, everyone. My most expensive orchid acquisition during the recent Redlands trip was a large Schomburgkia tompsoniana in spike from Plantio La Orquidea. There was one in bloom that I fell in love with but it was sold so I opted for this one in spike. Kathy loved it as well but I think she thought it was too big to travel on the plane. Anyway, the flowers began to open yesterday and I hope you like it as much as we did.

Jim

I have a few today
Thumb of 2013-06-02/ctcarol/dd9e7a Nageliella (Hartwegia) has 10 spikes bobbing in the breeze. Only three are new spikes
Thumb of 2013-06-02/ctcarol/4136b3 The best close up I can get on this
Thumb of 2013-06-02/ctcarol/38adcb This NOID snuck up on me. The petals are actually very pale lavender. Any guesses?
Thumb of 2013-06-02/ctcarol/809666 Den. Tuanani only has 2 flowers this year
Thumb of 2013-06-02/ctcarol/260a0c Paph. Wendbourn X rosydawn is doing an encore. It bloomed in Jan.

Beauties, Carol, love the Den Tuanani! I was lookin at all that lovely fruit in the first pic. Nectarines?

Mm hmm, Kathy would have had to buy ithat Schom a seat of its own, you wouldn't want to put it in luggage with that big spike . . . very expensive orchid indeed! (Plantio folks would have likely shipped it for her, actually)

It's absolutely lovely, Jim. You need to venture down to Sarasota more often though Green Grin! . . . That baby rode all the way to Redlands in their truck, then back past where it started in your truck before heading home to Odessa.
B. nodosa 'Big Jim' with all his flowers open. (sorry for the repeat, I just hate to post without a picture)

Carol, I'll bet a nickel your NOID has some Laelia purpurata in it. Also, very nice Paph.

Elaine, you can post Big Jim as many times as you want. I love it.

Jim, the Schomburgkia is certainly worth it. I like it very much! Lovey dubby

Carol, I am glad you posted the Nageliella!! That one is so impossible to photograph. Mine started up too and I just deleted a bunch of fuzzy closeups. You did very well. I love the Cattleya!

Elaine, 'Big Jim' looks great! Thumbs up

Ok here it goes:
All Orchids are now in the cage for their Summer vacation, I got the job done on Thursday evening, just in time for the weekend. Now comes the greenhouse clean-up, that is major exercise...
Thumb of 2013-06-03/Ursula/625280
There is a Fly-party in the cage as the blooms open on Bulbophyllum graveolens 'Mount Millais' - the blooms aren't really stinky, who knows what those flies are thinking. Confused
Thumb of 2013-06-03/Ursula/56dcf9 Thumb of 2013-06-03/Ursula/0c4965

Cattleya luteola is a small plant, I am glad it was very warm the last couple of days, this one usually aborts the buds if kept too chilly.

Elaine, The Nageliella lives in my lemon tree.
Ursula, Yeh! it's tough to get a picture that does it justice. Love that Phrag! I hear you are in for some more bad weather.
Jim, I've looked at everything I could , trying to ID that pass along, and the closest I have found is C.jennmanii, but there are so many similar....? It's sure smellin' up the shack though. I'll bet you had NO problem getting that Schlom. in your truck! Hmmm.....
