    I've been very busy but was able to get some more pics today. The cattleyas are exploding in my g.h.

    Here's C. Margaret Degenhardt 'Saturn' blooming on 2 spikes. It's got 3 spikes in sheath coming that should be opening in a few weeks. It would have really been spectacular with all 5 spikes blooming at once. And a full plant shot to show how big these standard catts can get. It's outgrowing an 8" pot.

    This is Lc. Chiou Jye Chen 'Kitten Face'. It's probably the floppiest, floofiest, cattleya I own. I love the coloration, but don't like the shape and substance. Kind of wild colors.

    And last is Blc. Hwa Yuan Grace 'Hawaii' blooming for the first time. The shape isn't perfect this time but I like the colors. I've also stuck in a photo of the same cross, but different clone of 'Cat King' to compare it to.

    Thanks peeps. They're stinking up the house. In a good way, though.
