Slipper orchids are just my favorites! Yours is one of the loveliest I've seen!

Happy Mother's Day to you, too, Kathleen! What a beautiful gift. I'd love to find one of those (esp. at 50% off!). ;-)

A beauty! I wish I'd had more luck with the two I had last year. Perhaps I'll have to give them another try...they are exquisite! I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful.

Sweet Bay

That is gorgeous... great photos too. Happy Mother's Day!


What a beautiful one. It almost tempts me into trying Orchids.
I hope you had a good weekend.
Happy Mother's Day :)


What a gorgeous bloom, just in time for Mother's Day. :)


These are beautiful images. Happy they bloomed for you on Mother's Day.


Good morning. Your orchid is beautiful.

Our local orchid society had a table at Saturday's plant sale. I always manage to resist because I don't have a good place inside for growing them.

Thanks for the info on the Camassia quamash, reading up on them, it says they are slow to mature. Maybe next year they will be larger.

I would love to try a Slipper Orchid someday. What a wonderful Mother's Day gift :-)


The pink would have done it for me! These are gorgeous plants, but they do not grow for me and I will not kill another. :) So I just look and enjoy them from afar.
