Wow! That must have been one nasty dream. Here is hoping you heal quickly. Very nice epi and it's good to see a miltonia that hasn't drown.

Ursula, beautiful Lc Love Knot but then I'm fond of almost anything with laelia in it.

I forgot to post Asc. Crownfox 'Golden Dawn'.
I had two of these and gave one to Laurel the last time I saw her in Apopka. She took it and promptly won a blue ribbon from the Atlanta Orchid Society making me a proud papa. Speaking of Laurel, Patty and I popped in at her Georgia DG roundup up at Maypop. What a wonderful property that is! They have a wonderful veggie garden and 28 acres of woodlands to roam. Just beautiful.

Jim

One disappointment is that Ctsm Crown Fox Voodoo was in spike when I left and finished blooming before I returned. I just got it last year and have not seen it bloom I'll have to wait another year to see the "rattlesnake". It is happy and growing like a weed so I'm sure I'll get another opportunity.

I found this little peeper today and asked him if he would model for the camera on my orchids.

Yes, Jim, I saw that Laurel won a blue ribbon and had a great RU at her house the last few weeks before my DG subscription expired. I think I'd like to find that one someday! Love it! Lovey dubby
Too bad about the Ctsm, but it looks really happy so I'm sure you will enjoy it next year.
I'm jealous of the psychopsis since I can't grow them and I certainly have tried!
I don't blame you for taking many pics of V. Princess Blue!! Lovey dubby

My nightmare was about huge ugly fish (like a gar) with double rows of teeth that invaded my house and got bigger and bigger. I was jumping to keep from getting bitten. I don't really have any fear of fish...that I know of!!

Kathy, I'll meet you in Apopka and you can get that vanda for just $10.00! No mean, big fish there either but look out for the dogs.

Oh my Kathy! What a nasty nightmare! That must have hurt! You know, next time dream about pretty little Paradise Fish, ok?
Cute little Peeper!

Jim, the Ascda Crownfox has a very pretty pattern. Congrats Laurel! And - those blue Vandas always want to have their picture taken. Smiling

Thanks, Janice. I luckily don't seem in terrible pain and I still have the damage under wraps.
Oh, I wish I had a cymbidium in bloom. Sometimes I crave the smell of Golden Elf!!!!

Hmmm. Maybe I should check under the shade cloth. Does yours have scent or is it like Ken's with no scent?

Speaking of a scent, Stanhopea Wardii opened last night and the lanai is filled with the smell of sweet perfume.
