Oh you changed your site? I love that header too. BTW, this is a Dendrobium but it is not a sanggumay, which is a specific variety of Dendrobium. Its spikes are drooping and the flowers are very different morphologically. thanks.

Ralph Waldo Emerson knew how to find beauty. His own home was in a beautiful place - and your orchids are a pleasure to behold.
