    Default Another awarded cattleya in bloom

    This one had such a long name, I decided to put it inside the thread instead of in the title. Maybe it is named by now? Anyway, I really enjoy the delicate coloring of this one. The blooms are a bit bunched together, but I believe this is how this particular one blooms. We have three of these and they all have produced blooms bunched like this. In the photo you can see one of the other ones I could not reach easily to photograph. (Top left). There is a light fragrance, but I suspect it is stronger when the sun is out fully. Enjoy.

    Beautiful! Looks like you had to stand on a ladder to get the pic! Your GH must be a fragrant place about now.
