Lavender explosion

Cattleya skinneri budding you have to look closely
Same plant 7 days later

I will always marvel at the magnificence of nature.  What it does effortlessly man with all of our technology and know-how, can’t begin to rival.

I love watching the daily progress of buds turning to blooms, this was a beautiful display and will hold the flowers for 4-6 weeks.

Happy Tuesday,

  1. So jealous of your beautiful cattlaya. We do not have the proper conditions here in Idaho to grow such beauty. My mother grew over 500 orchids in New Mexico in her small greenhouse. Well Done.

  2. Thank you, we can only take partial credit for the beauty, the heat and humidity here lends itself to beautiful results.

    My favorite part of orchids blooming is the length of time these beauties will stay fresh and alive, weeks and weeks. Have a beautiful day!!
