2011's Orchid crop: very promising - Day 7

The upstairs orchids have been gearing up for their show this winter. The photo above is of the light yellow one with pink highlights. This one didn't flower last winter and I think it was in protest of me putting it outside in a place I thought would work. It didn't...and it took a while for them to get over it. Too much sun (and it was just morning sun) didn't agree and they got burnt.

But it's a new year, and they didn't go outside. So, right now 4 out of my 6 orchids are forming flower scapes. I did decide the mini one downstairs is getting ready to flower and I'm really excited about that. I love my orchids...who knew they would be so easy to grow!
