The water lilies we planted in the lake a couple of years ago are finally getting really full with beautiful yellow blossoms. The geese seem to appreciate them too ☺.

Masdevallias mejiana is a miniature Masdevallia orchid with really large flowers (almost 5" tip to tip). It's also one of the few of this genus that thrive in warm temperatures so it's outside on the back deck during the summer. It comes from lower mountain elevations in Colombia and is really easy to grow if it can be kept constantly moist.

So along with the orchids I keep a few Hoya plants to make things interesting. Hoya are great companions to orchids - they require very little care, about the same conditions as warm-growing orchids, and some of them are very fragrant as a bonus. This is Hoya imperialis, a large climbing vine with huge umbels of flowers, each almost 3" wide (perhaps the largest of the Hoyas) that are thick, glossy burgundy-red and very showy.

This beautifully-marked, award winning gem, Masdevallia Bobcat 'Snow Leopard' AM/AOS, is an orchid hybrid that requires cool, moist conditions at all times so it lives in the modified wine cooler.

Orchids offer an incredibly diverse array of shapes and colors. Here's an unusual looking one - Restrapia cymbula (the boat-shaped Restrapia) - a miniature plant with beautifully marked flowers that are only about 3/4" long. It naturally grows at high mountain elevations in Ecuador (cloud forests - always cool and humid) and it's now blooming in my cold growing fridge (a modified wine cooler from Home Depot).

Sophronitis cernua is blooming again! As this miniature orchid matures, it very reliably blooms about every six months. It seems very happy mounted on a hunk of cork bark.
