Beautiful. I wish I could grow orchids. I can take one home and immediately it will die.

That sure is lovely! I like the name, too. Just as my eyes landed on it, I was putting the last bite of chocolate in my mouth.

Our highs are getting into the 30s this week, and we could see 41 by Saturday. I'm thinking the weather here in SE Nebraska comes your way for the most part. Is that right?

That is one lovely orchid!
Orchids are some of the flowers I go to see at the Frederick Meijer Gardens here in W. Michigan - and they are fabulous there!

Beautiful. I see an elegant fairy (without arms and legs). I love how orchid flowers can be enjoyed for so long. I think I see a few aphids which need to be squished, though.

The chocolate orchid is just beautiful. It helps the "garden withdrawals" when you can have something so pretty to enjoy in your home.
