Iwanagara Apple Blossom

One of my very favorites.

The blossoms seem to float.  The pale pink/purple, cream, yellow, fade into each other. The fragrance is strong, sweet. I've had this plant for eight years and it's bloomed every one of them. Couldn't decide which picture to publish, so I picked three.

Brassovola Nodosa

The Brassovola blooms every Christmas. I love it for its white petal-like blossoms and graceful habit, but just as much for the amazing fragrance that comes out only at night.

Paphiopedilum Spicerianum

A small but exquisite Paph that looked pretty inconsequential by itself, so I put it next to a Cerissa Bonsai, giving it some context.
