Absolutely gorgeous ...

Thank you both but, (unfortunately), the dye they used to obtain this colouring has long since washed away & now the flowers have reverted back to their true & original colour which is pure white with a little yellow in the centre.

I must say though it's equally stunning! :)

Clever isn’t it.......

I don't really know how they do this but I did know that blue doesn't exist in Orchids & therefore had to be a vegetable used to make them change colour.

Just yesterday the 10th, & last, flower bud opened. Now I have a scape with 10 perfect white flowers! (Though the oldest have a little bit of pink in them which doesn't take away from their beauty!)
