This orchid, our first ever, is growing in a pot in our kitchen since Dec. 30. Each day we admired, and "oohed" and "ahhhed" as each bud opened. Naturally, the next action was to take photographs.

Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.

I like the detail you captured with your fine close up of this gorgeous blossom. It must be a genuine treat to have this in your home.

@Don: Thanks, Don! It has been delightful to have this plant in the house. It is still going strong. I must say, it took me some time to get to know the blossoms. Quite a few of the images went into the delete bin.
