holiday bloom

A pretty pic to share with you today. My parents (orchid fanatics) brought us over this lovely guy last week when we had them over for a lunch... isn't' he pretty? Ohhhh... the responsibility... things are going well so far, he is well fed and watered and seems to be adjusting to his new home quite well. I haven't named him yet... any suggestions?... Mr. Yellow Orchid, doesn't seem to cut it.

He's gorgeous! And yes, what responsibility. I'm crossing my fingers for you. I think he looks like a Herbert.

An office mate of mine had an orchid once, you'd have thought it was a dog the way she cared for it. Good Luck!

it's so lovely! Wish I could keep them alive, myself.

You could name it "phal" (phalaenopsis)

Orchids are one of my favorites. Have you ever read the book The Orchid Thief? Oh it's wonderful :)

He is soooooo pretty! How about Handsome? Full name = Hey There Handsome.

I would call him Birdie. But he wouldn't last two weeks at my house. The cats would eat him and I'd forget to water. I'm not a good plant person, but I love gorgeous orchids.
