Orchids of late summer

Several of my orchids are in bloom, and I thought I'd share their beauty with you. I only wish we had "odorama" technology, because each flower has its own amazing and unique fragrance (chocolate = Ondocidium "Burgundian", sweet floral spice = Rhyncholaeliocattleya "Helene Belas", and freshly cut cilantro = Miltonia "Sunset". FWIW, "Helene Belas" ( is a registered orchid that I developed and named after my mother.

Anyhow, I hope you like these photos. Thank you for viewing, and please feel free to comment.
