The spike of this Harold is quite tenacious, very much like his namesake!

The relative size of these flowers in relation to the plant is something. Perhaps it will still flatten out more.

Very nice! I second Linus on liking the corn field in the background.

I used to keep my Paphs outside during the hot, wet Kentucky summer. Did them good—won my first AM from a Paph that flowered while outside.

Very nice.

I wonder if you could take a pic with the flower facing the sun as the recent photos were backlit and doesn’t show true color. A close up of flower as well as full plant (with spike) will be cool to appreciate much more.
