Default Orchids around the Yard.

Inspired by Curtis2010's "Rio Dulce Morning Coffee Stroll" I figured I would start a similar thread to post pictures of what's going on with the orchids that I have growing around my house. Seeing as I only have orchids outdoors the Outdoor Gardening forum seemed appropriate, though if someone thinks it belongs somewhere else please let me know.
For the most part the orchids I have were collected on our property in Northern Costa Rica. Though after a storm I'll often take a scenic route through the hills if I have time, keeping an eye out for fallen trees and branches which often have orchids doomed to die on the the ground if no one saves them.
In any case for most of the year there is something in bloom, so this thread should get semi-regular posts with pictures of native Costa Rica orchids.

Here are a few of the orchids that bloomed last few weeks around the house, starting with a small Sobralia decora that bloomed for the first time.

Yep. Not working for me either. They probably appear on your computer because that's where they reside.

Thanks, there should be some really nice ones coming up in the next few months. My Gongoras and Stanhopea have produced multiple new pbulbs for each of last years so they should put on quite a show. Plus a few new one seem like they might bloom soon too. Looking forward to seeing what they are.
