Love the colors Dot!!! Now you will have to show us what it looks like when it opens!!! beautiful flowers!
Thanks, Ruth. It’s fully opened today, just a day later. I’ll either take it outside or wait for afternoon light in the dining room windows. I don’t like to use flash if I can help it. It’s the same plant whose blooms I posted last year (You can see I’ve tweaked the color a little.).
Thanks so very much, Cee!
Just beautiful with the black background! Orchids are so pretty.
Thanks so much, Lynn! Glad you like it!
I like the tweaking effects much more!!! NICE work!!
Thanks, my friend! I think I’ve learned a lot in the past year!
Beautiful close-up, Dot — look forward to seeing the full-out blooms too!
I hope I can get a good one to show you. Thanks so much, Monnie!
Just wait a day Dot..LOL.
Yup, that was today (Wednesday), and I thank you for visiting the new post and this one!
spectacular shot Dot!
Thank you so much, Linda!
A beauty to behold.
Thank you so much, Lynn. And here is the same flower today, one day later.
Wow! My orchids are almost done for this blooming. Hope they bloom again some day.
I thought this plant was dead Glad I didn’t throw it away! LOL
