Just as I hoped, the second big bud popped this morning. It was only partially open today, but should be fully in bloom tomorrow. There are half a dozen more buds on this stalk and more on another stalk. Also, the other orchid has buds that look a bit more solid today than yesterday. I have great hopes for it.
I didn’t process these pictures. I did nothing more than sign each one and reduce its size. I only cropped one photograph. It was refreshing to not do all that work.
I only wish more sets of pictures came as well as these did. I have made friends with my macro lens. Sometimes, the magic works.
