Last years Flea Market find,is this years bloom. (Dendrobium)

When I bought it last year at the FM,it was either near the end of bloom,or was it a pale bloomer? I took a chance as it was in the $10 range. To see it in deep bloom today vindicated my hopes!
Its pretty much in the Dendrobium "Comet" family of cultivars. I see like 20 of these on the net..only slight differences. You know how that goes.

The wife is liking it and the other Orchids in bloom on the porch. They do have one advantage if but smaller species,the blooms seem to last longer. The D.kingii she likes the scent of.
I haven't tried yet to see if this one in the photo has a scent.
I have to post a pic of all the small plants in bloom. Lilliputian.
