Talking A rather pink holiday!

The dominating colour this season is pastel pink, closely followed by darker pink. Most favoured pattern; freckles.

Here is the pink crowd!

My Wiganiae with its two tiny siblings:




Here's my Graz again:


And My Tiny Doll has started to open the buds on its new spike (third blooming since I brought it home in Mars):


Here's my equestris var. rosea:


Here's my Dtps. Bonita:


My Mutant:


And my Jennifer Palermo:


As you can see, my holidays are rather pink at the moment, with the pastel pink in the lead.

Two that dare being different:

Stone Dance var. Yellow:


Dtps. Tzu Chiang Orange C#1:


And the odd one out:

Paph. venustum:

Wow! What a nice display. Dtps. Bonita goes straight to my wish list. Jennifer Palermo has outstanding color.
How did you manage to convince them all to bloom at the same time?

Lots of bribes.

Seriously, I've no idea, but it could have something to do with the perfect Phal summer we've had in Sweden (bright, overcast skies, high humidity, and rather warm temperatures), plus I have some extra light so they won't suffer the dark as much as they normally do. They all started working on their new spikes approximately the same time and it feels great that they've all started to bloom at the same time. Plus I have more in spike too, so it's going to be a colourful winter.

I'm glad I'm not the only one loving the Dtps. Bonita! Wonderful thing about it; it has a lovely fragrance.
