New orchids

Back in the UK, I used to love growing orchids, but obviously I could not transport them all the way over the grand ole US of A. It took me a while to find something other than phalaenopsis’ everywhere (not that I am against these, per se… in fact, I have a definite hankering for a white one), until I stumbled upon Davis wholesale florist in Birmingham. For $16 a piece, I became the proud owner of:

A midnight Blue Bolopetalum

Bolo (yes, that is his name) waiting to bloom

And an Alcra, Pacific Nova.

Jenny (more imaginatively, although less understandably, named than Bolo)

Pretty 🙂 If anyone else knows a good spot to get unusual plants in Birmingham, let me know 🙂
