This is an orchid (Catlleya loddigesii) with an interesting history. It came from the farm of relatives of mine.





Years ago, my wife and I went there for a few days vacancy. In the arrival, it where a truck plenty of orchids parked. That morning they caught the guys, with the truck, stoling orchids from the legal reserve of the farm. As a result, my cousin, all workers that could be out of job, and we, spend the days fixing orchids back in trees.

At the end, I brought home this one and tied it at this tree, where it lives till now.

2nd story: tomorrow, november 22, is the birthday of my nephew Thiago. Until a few years ago the family lived in an apartment so his party where always here, in my home. Once the orchid were with flowers in every party, it is known in the family as "Thiago's orchid" Wink

How charming. I love orchids...sadly, they don't feel the same about me and my climate! Embarassed

What a stunning color! Sorry to hear about the theft attempts, hopefully it doesn't hurt the orchids too much.

Thanks for sharing!
