Friday Flower – Brassia orchid

Brassia orchid – Photograph by Laura Lecce

This beautiful Brassia orchid is one of my favorites because it possess so much character. Every Spring it sends out a long flower spike with numerous colorful and fragrant flowers each with their very own unique and bold pattern (if you look close enough you will see that every splash of brown is a slightly different shape). These orchids which are mostly native to Mexico and Central America are also called spider orchids because their long thin petals resemble spider legs. If you need to be convinced – click here for my post on the St Andrews Cross spider. Have a happy weekend everyone!!!

    1. Thanks Margaret, enjoy your weekend. I imagine it’s much warmer in your side of the country. Here it’s as if winter finally realized that it forgot to snow in Feb and is making up for it in March.
