My word, I wouldn't have guessed from your photos at the end of the year  - http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=13912.msg369042#msg369042    - that they would come so quickly to flower

It is amazing what a bit of heat will do, not that we are due any of that in the next few days.
 Pass the blow torch!

this afternoon, outside minus 6c but under glass when sun was shinning 16C, enough to trigger the first blossoms.

My friend, Stella Tracey, has sent me some Orchid pictures and has agreed that I post them on the Forum. The four (SM1-SM4) are of Orchids in Stella's meadow.

That bicolour orchid is a very strange Early Purple.  I have seen a few all whites, but never one with a bit of both.
