Winter Orchids

Today is the last day of 2017. The coldest New Year's Eve in this half century! The temperature has been around 10-20 degrees F for a week.  It's going to be a frigid, brutal, cold and single digit New Year's Eve. I am worried about the people gathering in Times Square in NYC, waiting for the crystal ball to drop, and singing Auld Lang Syne, saying good bye to 2017 and cheering for 2018. They might freeze in this kind of cold!
Well, these orchids will help to warm our hearts and lift up our spirits in these cold days. They are still blooming. The purple and white cattleyas (first and second pictures below) are producing a nice fragrance in the air.  So pleasant!

I didn't expect this miniature dendrobium bloom again
