Flower Friday - Orchids

Now I'm not sure if it's just because Phalaenopsis are so common, but I tend to prefer just about every other genus of orchid.  My favourite at the moment seems to be Paphiopedilum.  They are said to be a much more primitive orchid as referenced by the flower anatomy and colouration.  I think my interest stems from the variation of colours, textures and patters in a single flower.  I believe the first flowers below are Cymbidium, and the second photos are of one of my favourite Paphs.

  1. Do you read Mat Opel's blog, Burger's Onion??? You and he seem to be of the same mind. Similar interests. Both horticulturists.
