Colours: Different shades of Purple

Orchid in bloom.  Fuji F10
16th January 2014

The orchids in the bathroom do seem to like the humid atmosphere.   This purple one seems to bloom less often than the others, but when it does, it provides quite a show with many different shades and hues of purple all in the same flower.

The flower is also slightly scented which makes for a nice atmosphere when I open the curtains in the morning.

I am always amazed at just how long the flowers last for too; the plant spends most of its time looking half dead, yet is capable of generating such photogenic subjects.
