How lovely!

Is that den anosmum? Mine didn't bloom this year. I am green, yours looks so nice.

As an "experiment", I bought my first orchid earlier this year - a purple phalaenopsis. Wow! Now I understand the attraction. I expected the blooms to last a couple of weeks and then I'd have a plain green plant for a long time. Instead, it's still blooming!

So Hester, you're right - orchids ARE wonderful. And your garden looks pretty wonderful too, Veronica. - June

Thank you all. I don't know the names of either of those orchids. I sure do enjoy them.

Hi
The first is a Dendrobium aggregatum. They need a cool very dry winter rest which you obviously provided lol Mine has a few scraggly flowers due to getting water lol
They can be so spectacular though it's short lived gary

Beautiful garden Veronica! LOVE the roses of course. Perle D'Or is so lovely. It's been a great spring for roses hasn't it?

You have some nice color going there, Veronica. I love the rose pics. My roses blew too fast--it was so hot this spring. Love the orchids, too. Maybe I'll try one in the fall.

Your garden is so lovely to look at, but that yellow orchid takes my breath away. ;o)
