It sounds like you have a lovely bouquet going...

I have several Phals reblooming, and rebudding, including
Yu Ping Panda "White Leopard", Doritaenopsis Green Field Zuu #3, and a shell-pink NOID gift.
I also have an Oncidium Twinkle Red reblooming and a Paph. in early bud.

My latest acquisitions were Oncidium Heaven Scent "Redolence" (Lovely fragrance), a Miltonidium Ruffles and a couple of pretty NOID Phals, one a Mini.

My main love is still Butterfly Gardening but the orchids really catch my eye in the bleak Winter months.

8-10 hybrid phals, several more in spike.
Phrag. Dick Clement x sargentanium
Phrag. Barbara LeeAnn x longifolium
Phrag. caudatum x Magic Tresses (Really neat plant, @ 15" tails on 1st bloom)

A couple of other mini-vanda types spiking,

Probably a couple of oddballs I've missed.

All of this in a spare bedroom, my windowsill here at work or in window sills at home. Pretty nice on these gloomy winter days.

I've got a standard Cymbidium 'Mighty Sunset',
Vandafinetia Blaupunkt (currently going to the Lansing show)
Den. Burana Blue Sapphire (also at show)
Leptotes pohlitinocoi (ditto)
DL Misoguchi 'Snowflake'
a mini cat by Hausermann that has 'Eric' in the name
and a species Den I bought at the last show.
Not too bad, and I have four deciduous dendrobiums all filling out their buds right now.

We've had a very weird winter here, with record cold and mostly gray days. But still have a few blooming:

Bletilla striata
Dendrobium anceps
Encyclia osmantha (has a huge bud)
Jumellea confusa
Paph Hsinying Alien (Supersuk x Raisin Pie)
Phalaenopsis NOID (white w/ red lip)
Phalaenopsis NOID (buds look like a purple mini flower)
Restrepia dodsonii

I can't resist looking at the clearance table at Lowe's for drastically marked-down Phals (usually untagged). I take them home, give them some R&R so they will bloom again, and then give them to my local society for the raffle table.

My favorute haunts for Phals lately is Hy-Vee and Copps Groceries when they first come in. They're usually untagged, but attractive nonetheless, and the care is all the same.

Hi terp! Hope you have been doing okay. Had some health problems and wasn't on the computer very much. Now back to orchid growing! Have managed to get hooked on Neofinetia falcatas., lol.
