Summer orchids: Miltonia clowesii
« on: August 29, 2017, 05:21:42 pm »

Here's another of my orchids that recently bloomed. Miltonia clowesii is a native to Brazil producing 4 or more flowers on a single flower spike. The small flowers are mildly fragrant and have a rather waxy surface, but are richly colored in purple, bronze, and white. This particular plant surprised me with its flower, as it has had a rough time this summer, with our usually wet and hot weather. There are three other buds (off camera), giving me hopes that this orchid is here to stay.

Thank you for viewing, and please feel free to C&C.

Bob

I have seen a number of lovely orchids up at Longwood Gardens, but this one takes the cake. A 10 on the lovely scale!

Hi, I really liked this photo and the color combination. I think it can be printed out and used instead of a picture for home decoration. By the way, I went to your site and looked at your photos. I can say that you are well done, you have a sense of style and talent as a photographer. I especially liked your photos of nature. By the way, the pages of your site took a long time to load, I think you should contact a specialist to fix it. And if we talk about pictures of plants, I think that you could provide photo content to various blogs, such as Hobby plants. I wonder if you put your pictures on any sales platforms?
