    Thanks very much for the wonderful compliments, everyone! Now that I look at the picture again, ( it was taken late evening ) I wish I would have waited until morning. The flowers are actually very pretty, and more colorful than the picture shows. That's what happens when I get in a hurry, LOL.....Betty

    Very nice. I like encyclias mostly because of their fragrance. Good growing.

    I love the Encyclia form and color combinations as you know Betty. This is a good example of a happy plant who rewarded your care with blooms. I am smelling fragrant Vandas that are reblooming in my greenhouse, but no Encyclia flowers have graced me with their presence yet. I would love to add there beauty and fragrance to the orchid mix.
