    Default City-livin' White Cattleyas :)

    Hi All,

    I thought I would share these cute pics I took of my C. Wedding Song 'Virgin' tonight against the window...I was trying to capture our view, so you can see where these guys live, haha...

    Sorry they are so dark, I will take some tomorrow in the daylight! (they all just opened this evening...)

    Thanks for looking!
    ~Becky

    Beautiful white clusters you got there.
    It looks like they love growing on that windowsill.

    Woow, what a great plant and wonderful flowers! They seem to be happy at your new home!
    Nice view, even though it's dark outside.

    I am currently bidding on a internet website for a similat Cattleya with white flowers! I hope I can get it!

    Bye!

    Hmmm! I would take photo number 5, crop the aluminum window frame from the side. That would make a very nice shot of your 'chid against the Chicago skyline.

    They look so sophisticated against the city backdrop. All you need is a martini glass in the picture! LOL! Great, unusual shots.
