Debra enjoys seeing things in photos. I think that's fun too. Does this unique orchid(?) look like anything to anyone else? Makes me curious as to it's name.

@HoosierHarvester It is a paphiopedilum (lady slipper orchid).

It is so sweet! It looks like a giraffe to me, but maybe the cartoon type.

That's what I see. A lady giraffe wearing a lady's cap and a bit cross-eyed, definitely a cartoon type! That's a cool bloom with lots of detail showing in the photo.

@needrain Donald, That is a perfect definition, especially the cross-eyed part!

Hilarious! I wonder if Debra (from Texas) saw it. Don't know her ID name offhand, or I'd call her to take a look.
