Slipper Orchid

I bought this little guy at Trader Joe's for $7 to have something interesting to draw, since not much is happening in the garden lately. The bud was closed, but I could tell I was going to get something special. What a treat to watch him open up! I don't know anything about Orchids; I just copied the name off the stake that was in the plant.



Trader Joes is the best palce for the small cheap orchids-they are better than cut flowers. We've always got one or two on our kitchen windowsill or bathroom counter. Instant class!! Great drawings BTW!!
