SmileIn time for Halloween




Scary looking, no?

my bulbophyllum putidum is flowering, one of my favorite flowers!

Look at the shaggy hair style, the long ears and large tongue:



but it is harmless, I assure you

Ooooh! That is scary! Does it have a fragrance? Does it produce seeds?

no fragrance I can detect, by my nose isn't very good
and no, no seeds for me :-/ Orchids from seeds isn't really the thing I want to go into. I would be too impatient

Haven't met a vampire yet. They must be into night gardening these days!

glad you all like the pics
Just glancing at this flower does not bring out the awesome features, one has to use Macro.
Calin maybe I should check after dark if that orchid has a fragrance to lure its prey
