A gift that keeps giving?

A family that we did not know gave us this plant during our housewarming.

A family member had cross-bred it. It was in bloom when they gave it to us. Two years later, we were rewarded with blooms again. This is the third time in 5 years that the plant has flowered for us.

I guess it is a gift that keeps giving ... every time it blooms.
Hope you liked it!!

It's beautiful! From a family you don't know? That's some friendly gesture. =)

Gee your garden looks dense out there. But of course, only a large garden can afford that depth. ;)

With all the tender loving care,
It is giving as much as it gets.

What a gorgeous orchid. Everytime there is a new breed, a new name will be given. So what's this beauty's name? ;)

Btw, since your blog name has the word "secret" in it, I thought I'd better seek your permission to put it into my blogroll.

Hi Stardust
THis dense garden of mine has been called a Jungle by some!! Hee! Hee!

Hi iml
Actually this plant doesnt get as much tlc as it should, i think! May be thats why it has only bloomed 3 times in 5 years!!

Hi Jomel
Dont know if the plant has been given a name or not.
