Wow! That is truly beautiful, Kathleen! :-) You really have a way with orchids.


Truly a beauty. Did you look on the web sight for the name? Really is pretty.

The Amaryllis is Minerva on my header.


I believe your Orchid is called a Paphiopedilum Eustacenum commonly know as the slipper orchid as it looks like a little slipper. It's beautiful ! I had one a long time ago but it died. I now have only phalaenopsis which seem to survive in my house better than other orchids.


Whatever her name, she's beautiful, and certainly very photogenic! Clever you, getting her to rebloom.
Wishing you a Happy New Year filled with rich blessings, Kathleen! At least we're on the other side of the equinox and can now look forward to slowly lengthening days :)


Worth waiting for! I can't help with the label but will join in the applause. What a gorgeous flower!


What a beautiful orchid, Kathleen! Is this the one your brother brought from Hawaii? Whatever his/her name is, it's a beauty!


Wow. I don't know anything about orchids, but this one is beautiful -- the colors are almost iridescent.


Just beautiful. I'm hanging onto one orchid, hoping it will bloom again someday.

I have no idea what this one is either, but I think it's exactly the kind of flower that the saying "a rose by any other name" was developed for (even if it doesn't smell).


Hi Kathleen, congratulations on the rebloom. Usually, on the tags, the name of that orchid is first, followed by any crosses, usually with an *x*. It may be that the breeders crossed Robert back with Macabre (love that name). They do some weird sex with those orchids, but she/he is a beauty!


Kathleen, whatever it is, it's a beauty, and you are a great photographer!


Love the stripes and dots~a wonderful combination in an already good looking flower...gail
