Cymbidiums Again

This is one of the orchids at the show that had a wonderful fragrance although some would say the one orchid species that smells like chocolate wins the prize.

    Beautiful and smells like chocolate. That is a win-win. 😃

      This one wasn’t the chocolate one. That orchid had much tinier blooms and darker petals. Still a win-win for some 🙂

        Chocolate is always a win for me. 😉

    Not all orchids are sweet smelling, I’m afraid. Quite a few years ago, I had an Oncidium orchid and was very happy to see it send up 3 or 4 sprays that first year — and then the buds opened. My home stunk to high heaven. Who knew such pretty little flowers could be so pungent? I trimmed off the blossoms and gave the plant to a friend that lived in Florida. He placed it in his yard where its could blooms could be enjoyed — from a distance. 🙂
