Couple of More Cymbidiums


Cymbidium Mighty Sunset 'Barbara'
(sim-BID-ee-um)

A couple more Cymbidium shots from the NYBG Orchid Show. These two had unusual colors (to me). ‘Barbara’ had huge spikes that were full of flowers and I was happy to see that I remembered to take a picture of the spike instead of just the close up.


The next orchid is also a Cymbidium but I didn’t see the name. The yellowy orange color was a standout.


Today we have to plant the Pansies at the farm and it marks the first Saturday workday of the season. Hopefully the overnight temperatures will be okay for the flowers as the memorial service is on Sunday. I think 1,000 people are attending.

How very beautiful. Orchids are endless in their variety and fascination, aren't they? Glad you showed the spike and the close up, both.
