An Orchid Day in the Garden

Surrounded by amazing blooming orchids, here are my 3 favorites today.

Lots of George's orchids are blooming madly right now. Here are three of my favorite wonders in the garden. First up, Mormodes tuxtlensis x sib. The saturated yellow glows in the morning and evening sunlight and it has a pleasant light scent.

Just beginning to open, several spikes of the Spiranthe Cernua orchid, also known as Nodding ladies' tresses. George won a trophy for Best Species Orchid Flower a few years ago for the parent of this plant.

And finally, another yellow treasure: Oncidium Gower Ransey. This orchid has multiple flowers along the spike, and as they gracefully bob in the air it's obvious why it's known as the Dancing Lady Orchid. For the photo I focused on a single bloom.
