Thanks for keeping me going during these cold few weeks. Now that the orchids are back outside, here is what made it through the frosty temps:

Blc Anne Belle is still going and the fragrance is delightful.

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."

This is Vanda Princess Blue X Kasem's Delight. It darkens with age. It was a difficult picture as I took it looking straight up with a bright white cloud background.

The Princess Blue is gorgeous.
In the end, only kindness matters.

Bree, I have no idea, sorry. I wish I could help. But they look nice!

Jim, it is really nice to see you being able to post your Orchids. They are beautiful and I am glad they don't show any sign of stress. Pretty Vandas!! Lovey dubby

Kathy, gorgeous Cyms. I love the lip on the 'Hui Lan'. Pretty 'Nora' and Laelia lundii looks nice. ( as I am tapping my foot for mine to progress)

My Ascda Peddler's Velvet Gold is now fully open.
Thumb of 2011-01-17/Ursula/4fb6d9 Thumb of 2011-01-17/Ursula/8c3c3a

A first, relatively large bloom on a very small Cattleya walkeriana 'Hawaiian Snow' x C. walkeriana var. flamea 'Divina'. That is a mouth full!! Big Grin
The color is fairly accurate, except the lip is a bit more fuchsia colored. The scent is lovely!

Cleisostoma arietinum is a newcomer, it was a Christmas present and it came in spike! Smiling The tiny, cute blooms measure ca. 6-7mm.
