In a previous post, I mentioned that I had another orchid blooming, though I'm not sure which Phalaenopsis it is. It was labeled 'Wedding Promenade,' but its spots tell me it isn't. It's not a huge deal to me, but I do like knowing a plant's name if possible. This is one of my bargain orchids I picked up several weeks ago at Lowe's.
Many of you know that pink is not one of my favorite flower colors, although I do make some exceptions. What I like about this one though, is how psychedelic it is. It's like God woke up one day and decided it would be fun to make a tie-dye orchid.
I was in Lowe's again on Friday and saw a gorgeous yellow orchid and would have bought it in a heartbeat if it were not for the unhealthy looking foliage. It just looked 'tired' and I would never purchase an orchid that didn't have good-looking foliage. Orchids are costly enough without starting out in less than optimum shape.
But those yellow flowers sure were pretty...
