Some more blooms from my lanai

This morning I was greeted by this crazy orchid gone wild.
It is about 10 years old, I have lost the name.  Twice we have divided it but it was such a big job then I am sure we couldn't tackle today.  It is about 3 ½ feet wide.
It is covered with buds and blooms and each bloom measures about 7" wide.

Another nameless cattleya but it has a beautiful scent.

Here we have two orchids, Momilani Rainbow and Tokyo Rose.
All of these (and a few more) are blooming this week.  They are my babies.
I crave their vibrant color!
Merry Christmas (Florida style) and Happy New Year!


  1. How lovely and LUCKY ! to have such beautiful blooms in your house dear .
    here though it is not much cold in Asia but flowers disappeared from my small garden .
