After rescuing my orchid from the snails & slugs last week, it has rewarded me with these beautiful blooms. There are five altogether, scattered along one spike. The spike is running horizontal, a sign perhaps that I should have given it some support. Though by the time I found it last week it may have been too late, & if I had of tried to bend it, it may well have snapped.

This is a closer view of one of the blooms, and looking closely we can see where the snails have had their dinner. I'll be more diligent next year.

How pretty! My orchids didn't produce a spike this year.
