    Default C. maxima, Blc Magic of Mishima 'Volcano Queen', Diacattleya Chantilly Lace 'Twinkle'

    I walk into the greenhouse this morning and three heavy-fragrance orchids are in full bloom.

    This was divided early this year due to several intersecting rhizomes. It still put up a good show.

    This is always tricky to photograph because of the neon piping. It tends to mess with the camera's focus.

    The 'Chantilly Lace' is gorgeous! They are such lovely flowers and smell wonderful. Your 'Maxima' flowers are very large...great growing! You obviously have the touch with Cattleya types.

    Wish the scent could come through the screen! I love the maxima, and the spots on the Chantilly Lace are adorable.

    John, I really like the maxima. The last photo looks like a plant that someone was looking for a ID the other day ? All three look great. Take Care,Rich

    Beautiful collection, John. Can't say which I like best but maxima and Chantilly Lace are outstanding.
