Flower of The Day Challenge #5 Orchid

My wife’s late father was an avid orchid grower in Kathmandu. He had his own mini nursery on the rooftop of his house in Ason in the centre of old Kathmandu. He propagated them and almost certainly created new clones or species. We are nowhere near as successful in our English climate but manage to have a few around our home, including this one below, but we have no idea what it is!

One of our many house orchids.

  2. Beautiful photo – maybe I’ll just look at the photos rather than actually trying to keep one alive!

  3. I love seeing them in the greenhouses in the Botanical gardens……One of the best is the Atlanta Botanical Garden……awesome! I think I wrote a post on them! What haven’t I written a post about? Ha ha!

  5. Beautiful flower. My husband brought home an orchid (grocery store variety) in early October and it’s still blooming! Nothing like a touch of the exotic in the middle of a dreary Alberta winter.

    • Quite agree Margaret. Well you are a long way north like ourselves, but we have the Gulf Stream to warm us a little! I have quite a collection of orchid photos I take on visits to garden centres but there usually the best and most expensive ones! Occasionally we find them in grocery stores too, always cheaper 👍
