The word lovely comes to mind viewing your pictures today, Jim. The 'Blue Birds' are calling me and your Orchid wall is very pretty! Your Orchids are loving the OC.

You mean my first post this month? Iwanagaara Appleblossom is now called Jackfowlieara Appleblossom, but some of us simply refuse to call it that. Angel

I followed my nose today and found some Bulbophyllum patens blooms and a bunch more buds! This Bulbo has a most interesting scent - imagine a combo of raspberries and and a smoky fire, not unpleasant at all.
Hopefully the next blooms might provide an opportunity to get a front view of the good size blooms.

Here is another Stelis with pendant strings of hairy blooms - this is Stelis ciliaris, just starting a blooming cycle.

This cute little Pleurothallis mathildae was picked up last weekend at the SEPOS, the blooms are teensy!

And my Appendicula elegans has hardly ever slowed down blooming since I bought it some years ago. Th tiny flowers are easily missed.

Beautiful show y'll.
