Orchid Blooms!

I've had this orchid for maybe 15 years... no blooms until now, just before I move! I had thought to sell them all since it would be hard to move them... especially in the cold weather and smaller home. Why now?  At least I've got some pretty pictures to remember this plant.

Camouflaged by it's surroundings - do you see the flowers? Page down...

Back drop is UFOs in project boxes, the leaf is on the far right at the bottom.  The leaves below the flower are from an Easter Cactus behind it.

At this angle I see a face in the center with a beak type nose and a beautiful beard, and a star shaped crown. He (It) has multiple eyes, and a gaping mouth. Do you see it? (I see faces everywhere... at least they're not dead people.)

We tried to get true colors, but I think we did that above. With the paper behind we got out of focus, and colors that this light scrambled. Anyway, I hope you like them, and they give you some joy to start out your week.
