The Secret Life of an Orchid

This is a cattleya phaleanopsis from my own collection. Orchids never cease to amaze the imagination!

And speaking of orchids, recently a social media acquaintance of mine happened to be trudging through the Everglades and spotted a rare ghost orchid! Check out his Flickr photoset of the adventure.

My boo-boo ... it's a phalaeonopsis, definitely not a vanda. Thanks for noticing and for stopping by!
