The orchids have started coming out of their winter slumber. The orchid above, a Phalaenopsis variety has lived with us for three years and never fails to disappoint us with its beauty each winter.
This orchid is another variety of Phalaenopsis and is a new addition. This and the one below were my birthday presents in January.
This orchid above is an Asian Paphiopedilum and is related to the North American orchids that grow in Wisconsin which are also known as Lady Slippers. I found one growing on our beatons property two summers ago.
