Thanks! Yes, it's so gorgeous! It's located right in front of the orchid house, which is the building in the background.

Yes, it's such a spectacular display! There were a couple of others in this area...this one was the most spectacular and largest, though!

This is how my neighbor Randallsd's one blooms (he has his in his backyard in semi-shade in a big pot). He promised me a cutting two years ago. I'll have to go and collect from him! LOL! :>)

Yes, definitely! Randallsd's orchid is as large as this posted plant.
