A very brief post today. Spring may as yet be absent, but it has sprung in my flat. Since the photos I posted last week, this beauty has flowered.
Its correct name is Paphiopedilum, which sounds like a whole bag of wickedness doesn’t it. I’ve had this orchid for two years, and has it flowered once until now? Has it hell. Instead, it seems to have spent its time reproducing… sort of… as it has duplicated, and I’m looking forward to having two of these hypnotising blooms staring at me over my breakfast cereal for a while.
