    Default C. Carol Ackerson

    This will be the last image I upload tonight. I still have homework to do. LOL! Anyway, I wanted to share with you one of our classic white cattleyas. I have sent out a few divisions of this girl to some friends so hopefully we will see some more of her blooms soon. Of all my cattleyas, this one seems to love neglect the most. She blooms and blooms and grows and grows. Enjoy.

    So beautiful. Should you ever need to find a loving home for another division . . . A catt that likes neglect and blooms like that would be welcome anyday.
