New beauty

Araignee might have bits of spring popping up already, but it's going to be several weeks before we see anything of the sort here. So I have to bring spring indoors while I wait.

So why not add to the orchid collection?
I actually dropped several not-so-subtle hints to a certain someone, hoping to get this for Valentine's Day. Alas... I got candy and chocolate instead (I won't complain - I like candy and chocolate.) But I really wanted one of those orchids.
Just look at those colours.  Of course, when I went back for this one, I saw another I wanted almost as much. Hopefully it will still be there next grocery day.

I love the colours in it.

I shall name it "Spot" and hug it and love it!

I don't have a whole lot of luck with those phals, but I sure do admire them every time I see them.

I have a mini one just about to bloom, but it's been so long that I don't even remember what color it is. It *might* be yellow. It is the only one that has ever survived long enough to rebloom.
