Another interest, Orchids
We still have a few orchids left around the place. A few years ago our work schedules got crazier and water restrictions tightened due to the drought. So we sold most of our collection and the large greenhouse.
Among the orchids we couldn't part with was this one. The tag has long since faded in the sun and I cant find the old ledgers to confirm what family it is (Brasso-cattleya? Laelia-cattleya?) but its name is Prism Palette 'Rainbow'. It really is that electric in colour, its almost startling. Click the pic for a larger view.
Enjoy your saturday - see you tommorrow with Budgie Sunday!
