My little "Rosy Tyke " Phalaenopsis is such a wonderful performer for me. When it started to spike around the same time my large white orchid did, I was thrilled. This little guy had just bloomed last spring so it was so wonderful to know I would get blooms again so soon. Rosy Tyke also has 4 buds.....3 have opened and the 4th should be blooming any day now.
These 2 beauties sit together on a humidity tray in one of my sunroom windows. I see them every day as I walk past the room and in and out of the room to paint and use our computer. I have 2 wonderful orchid field trips planned this winter and I'll be posting lots of photos on my blog. First, as many of you know, Chris and I go to the Orchid Show every year at the New York Botanical Garden. I take a ton of pictures each year...to see photos from the previous years outings, just go to my "Out And About" section on the right and you will find some photos from each of my visits to the past orchid shows there. I also have a trip coming up to a wonderful orchid nursery in PA sometime this winter. These 2 beautiful orchids above were purchased there and I cannot wait to go and spend some of my Christmas $$$$. It is not only a great shopping experience but the nursery is a real treat for the eyes and senses with row after row of fabulous greenhouses full of every species of orchid you can imagine. When I visit I plan to bring my camera and ask the owners if I may take pictures while I'm there. If I can, I will share all the photos with you.
