|It's been a quiet month so far, but here are a few orchids coming in to bloom. I'll start with a couple of Stanhopea:|

|An interesting little orchid, Cyconoches peruvianum|

|...a closer look at the flower. I am still not sure what or how this is pollinated.|

|I love this little beauty.|

|...and I'll finish for now with this happy looking couple.|

|OMG, these are wonderful (as always)!!! I especially love Phymatidium delicatulum, Jumellea arborescens, and the happy couple. And the Stanhopea oculata which I have but has never bloomed for me. Cyconoches peruvianum is so unusual! |
The photo contest starts today Richard!!! I hope you will enter some of your photos!! Thanks once again for posting from Kew.

|I was just reminiscing about being at Kew, must be 10 years ago. I was hardly into orchids then! I don't think I will ever be there again. That's why your posts are so precious to me, Richard. How wonderful to see what is happening there every month!!|

|Thank you all for your kind comments.|
Sugarcane: the Dendrochilum is in a 30cm (12inch) basket.
