Phragmipedium Don Wimber is in bloom

Winber051217.JPGI purchased this Phragmipedium Don Wimber from Paph Paradise at the Gold Country Orchids open house on Saturday, November 19th.  It was in bloom when I purchased it, and bloomed three additional times over the past few months — being a sequential bloomer.  It had completed it blooms, I thought, and I was getting ready to repot it into a new bark mix, when I discovered another bud.  This one is now in bloom.

It is a smaller flower that the first few, and without the vibrant red color.  But still beautiful.  I cannot tell if there is another bud behind this one.
