I was verrrry bad this weekend...I bought an orchid I saw last weekend and fell in love with. It is a slipper-type orchid...a phragmipedium. The colors are just spectacular...coral, pink and yellow with coral speckles on the inside of the pouch and nice twisty petals. I made the mistake of going back to the greenhouse this weekend and gave in and shelled out some big bucks (merry early Christmas to meee...lol). Its a multifloral with blooms opening sequentially. It has two open flowers and another bud emerging.
I'm going to try to post a pic...hope I remember how to do it. The photo doesn't do it justice though...its a beauty.
Maybe this will inspire some of you to try a phragmipedium...or any other orchid. :-)
