odds n' ends

may orchids – two

The miniature Equitant Oncidiums originated in the Caribbean. These are great compact plants that are easy to grow for any beginner. These plants can often bloom more than once a year. Larger specimen plants or large collections of Equitants can provide some blooms most of the year round. Equitants come in many shades of colors and have flowers that can be solid in color, spotted or barred. Thanks Orchid Web

Love these guys!  They are SOooo varied – purples to red violets and browns. And, with the sun pouring through the porch windows they make this beautiful May day seem positively tropical.

I’m thankful to be alive, surrounded by such beauty.

see ya soon
