I purchased this Dendrobium Parishii from the Orchids by Del-Rei booth at the Kanapaha Spring Festival. It was just starting to push out flowerbuds as I bought it, and its recently opened up all of it's raspberry scented flowers for my enjoyment. It's a deciduous Dendrobium much like Den. pierardii or Den. superbum, and it blooms without any leaves to distract you from the magical flowers.

That yummy sweet raspberry smell was such an enjoyable treat while I was making some more Rainforest Drops to send out. The sweet scent mingled nicely with the barbecue downstairs, and the shouts of children in the pool were the soundtrack to two whole hours of "work" that flew by faster than I could have imagined. It's already hot outside here in Jacksonville, but my shady balcony was warm and comfortable, and brushed by occasional breezes that sent my sphagnum moss flying in miniature whirlwinds. I guess you could say that I have it 'made in the shade'.
