rare oncidium

I find Oncidium very delightful. Their ruffled yellow lip really do make them look like ladies in full dancing skirts and they are really pleasing to the eyes.

In the past few weeks I spotted two pots of very unusual Oncidium, one in dad’s small orchid garden and one at friend David’s.

From dad’s garden:
Big flowers with brown petals and pink centre, never seen anything like it before!

From David’s garden:
I was very surprised when I found out that these tiny pink ones were Oncidium as I was only exposed to the yellow ones and ones that are bigger in size…

Song of Songs 2:11-12
11 See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.

12 Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,

the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
