    That's possibly the ugliest Catt I've ever seen. Send it to me so you don't have to look at that monstrosity any more, Bruce.

    Any scent? Bet it's stinky as well

    I never thought of that angle, went with the "sucking up" strategy.

    How come every posting I look at, they each have a picture of the most beautiful orchid ever, and I want them? I think I'm ill. This white orchid is by far, the most gorgeous. Just lovely -like an angel. An angel in plant form. So beautiful!!!

    You folks are making me blush! It is a very white orchid bloom. Sometimes there is a hint of yellow in the center, but not much on this blooming. This orchid get really high light (notice how light colored the leaves are). It just grows and blooms. I wish I could take it to a show, but it never seems to be in bloom when one is near enough to take it.

    And Elena - you have been talking to Diane too much...hehehehe... she is always trying to convince me that my flowers are just horrific and that she could deal with them for me. LOL!

    Cheers,
    BD
