Orchids in my sunroom



I dont think the colour comes out terribly well but the pink Dendrobium which I think is 'Bardo Rose' is stunning and covered itself in flowers, and the smell is lovely. I have the big denrobium speciosum outside the windows and there is going to be a lot of flowers there too.
The white d. delicatum is in the bathroom and not showing up terribly well against the white tiles. Their perfume can be almost overpowering at times.
Spring has sprung in the plum blossom area as well, I rather like this small flowered self seeded one as it covers itself.
I had a couple of not so good days but I wont repeat myself, I wrote about it on my other blog (see the side bar).
Still cold but a bit of sunshine and two more new foals.

Penny your orchids are amazing. Makes my poor little plants look insignificant. When I left our previous house at the coast to come here I did not think my orchids would survive so I gave them all away...sob sob...as it turns out this is an ideal place for them.

It must be wonderful to be surrounded by such beauty

What a gorgeous sunroom - you must have a spectacularly green thumb, - I am a real dolt at house plants, - do you have any secretes Penny?

Hope you are feeling better.
