Nice show, Lindsey. I think I have the same taste as you and Carol.

Kathy, I just love the Den 'Mountain Midnight'! It looks like she has her eyes closed.

I was out in the bushes taking a picture of the spiking Stanhopea when I noticed Epicattleya El Hatillo 'Pinta' still in bloom.

Happy 4th too!

Jim, still sneaking around the bushes? Big Grin
'Pinta' is very nice. Can't wait for mine to open.

Very pretty, Kathy and Lindsey!
The peloric Miltassia makes me count the flower parts. Smiling

This weekend we did our yearly search for the elusive Platanthera lacera ( at our place in Pennsy). Juvenile plants come up with 1 leaf, will usually bloom the next year after being a 2 leaf-plant. Once they flower, they are done and we look nearby for new plants. We found some after extensive combing, there is a lot of surrounding vegetation this year!
The first picture shows a nice tall plant, almost impossible to spot! Take a closer look if you like.

After some extensive searching we approached our pond and almost stepped on a flowering plant amongst the grasses at the edge of the water. I always wonder how many we missed.

Wow, you all have some beautiful plants in bloom. I have quite a bit of new growth on several and spikes on a couple, but nothing new in bloom, which is one of the reasons I love looking at your photos. Nice show.
