Looking good, Kathy.

I need to post the orchids I brought back from Apopka last Tuesday. I'll post the bloomers here and the others on the "I just bought" thread.

The is Blc Yen 24 Carat. I've also seen it spelled Karat.

This is a MIltassia but the name is missing. I got it for $5.00 so I wasn't too picky.

Pretty Blc. and Miltassa, Jim. I don't think I would call the Bulbo "pretty", but it sure has character.

Slc Mae Hawkins 'Miya' .Beautiful strong scent. Very difficult to capture the true color. It is darker and more intense than this. I shall keep trying.

Janice, all three are lovely. I guess those two are siblings of the same x. Keep trying on the red color. I shoot from many directions and in different lighting conditions when I'm working on getting true color. It also may be the limitations of your camera.
