    Default my first cattleya, purple

    hi folks,

    i know, she is nothing special, but still my first flowering cattleya with a nice fragrance,
    this kind is very common here and took me 6 hours travelling with her on my lap, that makes it more special to me with nice memories attached.

    cheers,

    The first one is always special Ron. The flower quality is not important. Well done.

    of course she is special, Ron, look at this purple and orange color. I also like the different shape of its spals. Twisted sepals.

    we can see many wonderful flowers here and anywhere, but ours are always the best.

    She's very beautiful. The color is so nice and saturated and the lip is nice and broad. Nice one, Ron!

    That is great! And the 6 hours of traveling with her on your lap just makes her even more memorable. Nice first flowering!! Congrats Ron.

    Cheers,
