At the moment, I'm going through another spell of being unenthused with plants, mostly because it's been cool again here and I've spent a bunch of time and energy putting them out in the morning, watering like mad so I can be finished before it's too cold to have them outside, and then dragging them all back in again. And even then, I've still damaged a couple. (Whatever the books and websites say about the cold tolerance of Aloes, don't believe it.)
So posting might be kind of light for a while, at least until it warms up a little. Not that I'm complaining about having cooler temperatures, goodness knows.
As for today's orchid, these are pretty lousy pictures, but my camera finds black/white contrasts challenging sometimes. I found some much better photos on another blog, which the reader may find of interest.
