Not an Orchid, but........was looking for a gardening thread.   Doesn't get much better than this on a cold wintery day!  :D
There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

Each flower is different and seems to have a coded message on it - a combination of chromosome patterns and Morse code. :)

pretty pretty!!

Yeah if you haven't fertilized them, they definitely need it. Should be fertilizing them at least once a month.
If you don't impact someone, then this is all a waste.

You can get some at Lowes or Home Depot.

I was picturing this dedicated guy with years of training coming round with his fertilising equipment and doing his job really well....
There were only the two of them on the mountain flying in the euphoric, bitter air, looking down on the hawk's back and the crawling lights of vehicles on the plain below, suspended above ordinary affairs....
