Winter orchid blooms

I arrived home in time to enjoy my Coel. cristata's first ever bloom, and it's so beautiful! Nice scent too, smells kind of cinnamony to me. I'm so happy that after receiving this plant as a clipping almost 5 years ago it has finally bloomed!

Also in bloom right now for the first time since leaving Victoria is my Zygopetalum X, with it's heady lily-like perfume. Between these two plants they are definitely spicing up the kitchen right now!

They are beautiful. I'm happy you got to see them.
