B. Little Stars Blooming in the Cold

This orchid is growing on an avocado tree and it has been blooming since October. The individual flower lasts for about three weeks. As some wilt other fresh flowers open. In the evenings they are very fragrant and the entire garden is filled with their fragrance. One of the parents has the common name of 'Lady of the Night'. The ladies have been standing by our front door for 3 months.
