Christmas Color

I received a Christmas gift from a friend and treated myself to some new orchids.


I set them up as a room divider rather than sticking them in a corner.  The plant on the left is not an orchid, but helped fill up the top of the shelf.

And it is fragrant.  This is my first cattleya and my first fragrant one too.  I got a couple which were finishing up on their bloom time, but would give me an idea of what they looked like.

The fourth one seems to be a dark purple one and should know what it looks like in a few days.


So, new orchids.  They make me feel happy.
