These didn't bloom last year, or at least I didn't detect them, and trust me, i keep my eyes open for them! These are an orchid, and they are rare.
They are amazing and gorgeous and exotic looking.
You may recall an old blog post with them featured.
This new camera definitely does a better job!
(or perhaps my photo skills are improving!)

See the gorgeous stripes on the inside of the moccasin?!
