Those are lovely Joy.
Patience sure is a virtue when it comes to waiting for orchids to re-bloom. I reckon once a year, if lucky! I have one, in a very cool north window, which is now on its' 3rd year and is re-blooming for the 3rd time! It's a miracle!

Well that's just beautiful! You obviously have mastered orchid culture.
I am in envy of your nice bright window for them though. My poor orchid has to be satisfied with a north window also. But I'm happy to say it has two stems in bud this time. It should be in bloom by Christmas.

after seeing those beauties I'm going to the sunroom to give my 1 and only orchid a stern talking to :) ..nonbloomer for 2 years now....will take laptop so she knows what she SHOULD BE doing

in addendum...I went to the sunroom after not being near it for a week at least..tail held high to give my wee orchid a tongue lashing and what to my wondering eyes should appear..........
