Well Cisco has been buggin' the heck out of me to restart the orchid photo thread.
The summer weather really cooperated this year and we do have some real beauties blooming.

LadyDi,

These are so beautiful. I like the white one with the purple center. I love irises and I think orchids look like irises. My mother's name was Iris.

Thanks for posting.

I am so glad to see pictures of your orchids popping up again to the delight of my eyes. They are all so beautiful. I especially like the first one, perhaps because of its different purple shades which make me think of my mother who loves the color purple.

Sounds good to me, too. I have an orchid in the greenhouse that should have a 5 foot spike when it blooms in February. The flowers are not particularly beautiful as far as shape is concerned, but there should be a ton of them. There are 4 spikes on the plant as we speak!!

Well, I brought this thread back up so that we could do something with it. Obviously, we need to add to it. Hopefully, it will get done within a few days. If not, I will drag it back to the top to try again. My sweetheart is the one who usually posts the pictures, but maybe she can show a novice. I won't promise names on the stuff I put up, but I don't think that you care too much about that anyway.

Well Di actually we were beating Gregg's ear,, in the chat room to start this post again.
If memory serves me correctly there are thousands of Orchid species.It would a nice way to start each morning with a different Orchid picture being posted. Regardless, thank you for sharing.

Okay - I have a couple of a gorgeous plant. Cattleya Everett Dirksen. It is an old style variety that was used was cut flowers and corsages. It smells heavenly! The second photo shows my hand by the flower so you can see exactly how large it is!

My wife went out yesterday to water orchids. There was an orchid that was "in bud" when she started to water. When I went out to close up our greenhouse this evening, it had bloomed! The suspect in question is Cattleya Portia 'Coerulea'. The coerulea denotes a blue color, but as most people who grow flowers or are exposed to them in business know, there are few 'blue' flowers of any kind. They end up being purple, or in this case lavender. I will coax LadyDi into photographing it and putting it on here for you to see.

I love all of the pictures you share. I eagerly anticipate seeing the next one or ones. The Everett Dirksen is certainly lovely and a good appetizer to feast my eyes upon until the next photo. Thank you.

This is the plant that bloomed when I had watered it - Cattleya Portia Coerulea. As Cisco mentioned above, it is referred to as a "blue" flower, but in actuality is a pale lavender.

We will have many photos to share coming up. A buddy of mine from the orchid society has been spraying for us to keep the bugs off and as a result, we have a bunch of orchids that are blooming. More than usual!!

Well, I cannot believe that we have had no responses on these beauts. Some of these are first time shows. That orange cattleya is one helluva flower. The lavender flower that you can see in both the photo with the orange orchid and the spotted one are the same orchid! I think it is the biggest cattleya we have, and that is saying a lot because the first one, Molly Tyler is 33 inches tall, and 43 inches wide, and had about 30 flowers on it this year! Many of these plants are going to have to be divided soon because they are just getting too big for the ;pots that they are in or the potting medium is breaking down. I am also buying some charcoal to add to our bark mix.
