    Red face BLC Golden Embers 'Chris' AM/AOS

    This cattleya was blooming in the greenhouse this morning. I was watering when I caught its fragrance. I could not see it because the bloom was hidden between two plants. I reached up and pulled it free. It is a little bit rough from begin squashed, but I still thought it was pretty enough to share. I hope you enjoy it.

    It was a huge bloom, but only one on this plant. The fact that I smelled the fragrance before seeing the bloom is probably due to the fact that the pot was hanging just above my head and as I water, I go from pot to pot down the line. I had to reach up to pull it free and snap this photo.

    Thanks for the kind comments!

    Cheers,
