Dancing Lady Orchid - Oncidium




While I am trying to finish my Harry Potter book, I thought I would share pictures of the latest addition to my orchid family. I had been searching for this particular orchid for some time. My brother had one years ago that he has since lost and I really loved it. While we were visiting him and his wife a couple of weeks ago in Florida, I found this one covered in buds with none of them open. They promised me faithfully that it was what I was seeking! I bought it on faith and within two days of returning home, you can see my reward! I wonder if any of you designers can duplicate this beauty for me?

The Dancing Lady is beautiful! I've tried orchids twice... notice I said tried. It's a good thing Dave takes care of the garden, because I think I have a brown thumb! Wouldn't it be great to have a tatted orchid pattern?

Wow, it looks amazing. I wish I were a designer...

Your orchid does look amazing. If you are looking for a 3D version of the flower, Toni Storer has a pattern for an oncidium orchid (along with several other species) in her book, A Tatted Bouquet of Orchids. Her website is: http://www.twoaussietattingtwits.com
