1. Cat. Name unknown
2. Paph. delenatii " Long Life"
3. Orchids 1, 2 & 3 are still blooming! The phalaenopsis and lady's slippers usually last much longer than the cattleyas. They last at least two months.
In May, my backyard garden was in full bloom. I used some of these flowers for my ikebana designs.

This one got first place in the phalaenopsis group in May's B.C.O.S. meeting. [Bucks County Orchid Society].
In May's meeting I also got first place in this paphiopedilum's [lady's slipper] group. Its name is Don Wimber. It is very easy to grow, faithfully blooming every year and lasts for three+ months. That's because new buds keep coming.
These three Cattleyas are beautiful! Right?They need a lot of bright light. As a windowsill grower, I am proud of myself.
