A major pleasure. My Brassia is blooming.
This picture doesn’t do it justice. Jim got me this brassia for Christmas 2011. It was in full bloom then. Happily it has bloomed every six months since then. I think it is magnificent. The blooms only last a couple weeks tops, then slowly they fade down to the tip of the spike. Time stands still until months later, it sends out a new spike and slowly the whole process repeats itself.
Orchidphilia is not for the impatient.
