Another kind of art

My prize orchid has begun blooming yet another
year. I am delighted that I figured out how to get
these gorgeous additions to my life to flower each
year. I have about a dozen of them. This is my
oldest one and it is so big this year I can hardly
believe it. There are 12 bud on the main stem and
if you look closely, you'll see two other flower stems
coming off of this one. Then I have noticed yet
another flower shoot coming out of among the flat
leaves below. Wow. One year I counted 37 buds,
let's see how this year's crop is - for just this guy!
Maybe I should name him. Her?
