Friday Fabulous Flower - bamboo orchid

Yes, the FFF is going up on Saturday, but Friday was an impossible day; it's getting to be that time of the semester when everyone wants everything and students are beginning to worry, some with good reason, that their efforts may be too little too late.  The bamboo orchid at home has burst into flower, and without question this orchid is like roses, a quite ungainly and rather ugly plant that produces some fabulous flowers.  This particular orchid is one that really likes being outside for the summer season hanging from a tree limb or a pergola or a shepard's hook.  So for most of the year it's an ungainly thing, and then it flowers and you understand why you bother.
