Orchid color transitions...

I see your true colors, shinin' thru.

I see your true colors, and that's why I love you!

I apologize for the cheesy 80s lyrics but more than that, for the quality of these photos. They are of the first blooming of my Cymbidium Sussex Dawn 'Concolor'. Which I thought was white...until pink began to show up in the lip. It's actually quite pretty, but I'm not sure it's going to last much longer. This is because I can see a yellowing of the petiole...this is the little stem that attaches the flower to the main inflorescence. For the first few weeks, it was all white. Then she started to blush ;)
