Orchid of the Week: Vanda Robert’s Delight

The orchid I’ve chosen to feature this week is a type that literally takes my breath away when I see it  in person: Vanda Robert’s Delight. This orchid comes in a variety of colors, but the purple ones are my favorites:

I saw these Vandas on display at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx:

One of the things I love most about Vandas are the little skeleton-looking faces in the center of the blooms. Here’s a closer look:

I don’t really have much to say about these flowers at the moment because I have a cold so my brain is sort of mush.  But I think these orchids are gorgeous so I had to post something about them. I could seriously look at pictures of Vandas online all day long. Vanda porn!
