The cymbidium is blooming!

I've had this cymbidium for several years now without ever getting it to rebloom. . . . last summer a friend recommended I leave it outside almost until it froze. I don't know if that was what did the trick or not, but this year I have fabulous blossoms!

While that is the highlight of my collection (the most difficult to bring into bloom and the most dramatic), it isn't the only beauty trying to brighten these late winter days.

Phragmipedium Rosy Gem "Roseum" - cardinale x sednii

Multi-Paphiopedilum "Pinocchio"
