June Orchids Bloom

Paph. "Shireen"
I ignored this lady slipper and almost gave it away.
Finally it is blooming after three years.
Encyclia "Green Hornet"  This one is so reliable,
its bloom seems to never end.
 Phalanopsis 1
Phalanopsis 2

Last year I had many Phalanopsis bloom.  This year I only have two.  Perhaps since I don't use fertilizer or my time was more devoted to my Ikebana.
I received this at our award night in May.
