    I wish I could have at least a couple! I get a list to order, but am telling myself to have some will power to wait out the urge for a while...

    Seeing your bloom doesn't help the self control, but it helps me to re-arrange the wish order

    For what it's worth, they do have a great shape and are almost always beautiful on their first few days. I had one once that opened as a bright yellow with fuschia spots and a neon orange lip, but changed to a plain golden yellow in a few days. I was sooo dissapointed...I gave it away - too much heartbreak. hahaha.

    Kelly, I have one that has a stunning lip. The petals and sepals open a light salmon color and fade to white...The lip is even more dramatic with the white flower. It is Blc Richard's Bonanza a cross of Bl Richard Mueller X Lc. Bonanza Queen

    I looked it up I could only find pictures with white petals/sepals...call me stuck in my ways but I think the salmon would be even better! (I'm not much a fan of white flowers as it is...) Still a gorgeous flower and lip though.
