yellow april orchids

This charming little basket of yellow dendrobiums  finally came into its own this week.  I honestly have to say this is one my very favorite specimens from D’s orchid collection.  It is just so sunny and bright and cheerful!

Nobile dendrobiums can be grown and flowered in the home or greenhouse. However, they have rather specific cultural requirements. When those requirements are met, they will produce a profusion of sweet-scented, long lasting flowers usually in spring. Thanks Orchid Web.

Who could resist its charm?

Even on a cloudy day I can see the sunshine in this one.

Then all your troubles will fade from your memory,
like floods that are past and remembered no more.
Your life will be brighter than sunshine at noon,
and life’s darkest hours will shine like the dawn.
You will live secure and full of hope;
God will protect you and give you rest.
Job 11:16-18(GNT)

see ya soon
