Lovely pictures, Fermi - and these come to flower so quickly from seed, I'm always surprised that more people don't grow them in med climate areas.

Thank you Fermi.  Once more lovely flowers to enjoy.  After our heavy rain we have been having sunshine and the wild flowers are out. Yesterday  I was pointing out to our granddaughter the orchids which are growing at the base of  their hill.  She was excited and was taking photographs to show her Dad.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.
