Pretty picture: Prosrhyncholeya Chief Green River

I'm now at the stage of being sick where I no longer feel "sick" -- my brain is more or less working properly, and I'm not constantly tired -- but I still have symptoms of being sick. Like, every so often my nose will suddenly fill up with thick, unmovable snot and I'll have to drop whatever I'm doing and try to push it out. Which is vastly preferable to the sore throat. There's some family stuff that may keep me semi-occupied for another week and a half, but I can once again imagine writing substantial blog posts, and imagining blog posts is a prerequisite for writing them, so we're making progress.

Meanwhile, this goofy little orchid.

I have to say I'm not a fan, but I'm not sure if that's the orchid's fault. I might be biased against this one because the handwriting on the tag was screwy, so I spent a really long time trying to find an orchid that didn't exist before accidentally happening on an ID that made the tag make sense.

Prosrhyncholeya Chief Green River = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Chief Cluster Suns x Cattleychea Chief Green Cernua (Ref.)

Flowers look to be of heavy substance, but far to congested in presentation. Wonder if it was a less than optimal blooming ....
