What's blooming?

I think they call these grape juice orchids. I need to do some research to find out exactly what the name is, but I know this is the dwarf or pigmy version. It's beautiful. I planted it about 6 months ago and it's spearding. This is the first blook since I planted them. Got it from Home Depot during a plant of the week sale. It probably wasn't more than $7. I really enjoy it.

Succulent at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

Here's another nice display from the Hyatt regency Grand Cypress. It looks like some kind of succulent. You can ususally spot a succulent because it's leaves will be very thick. This is where they store the water. I'm going to try to recreate one like this...someday when I get time.

Orchids at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

The gardens at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress are top notch. The hotel is well over 20 years old, but the attention they pay to detail has remained above average. This is a large container outside the main lobby. It's under shade and receives indirect sunlight. Even on the hottest and brightest days, it remains somewhat cooler here because the huge lobby doors are constantly letting cool air escape onto these plants. These *might* be cymbidiums. I plan to recreate this look.
