This is the second year that this Phrag besseae has come into bloom. It is Phrag. besseae ('Big Bob' x 'Colossal') and it came from Mountain Orchids.
I'm really happy with the form and the width of the petals. It is difficult to photograph, though. The two following shots show it taken with and without flash.





And this was the photo from last year's blooming:



Thanks for looking!!!

Interesting how the petals seem larger and the dorsal seems a little narrower this year. Pretty!!

This Morning

I had to take another photo this morning, as the light was shining behind the flower. There is a new bud coming along and a third bud hiding behind that one! Yippie!!!!



Thanks for looking!
