    Default Rlc. Laelia's Wedding

    I'm sure I posted this one before. It's kinda ugly but that makes it kinda cool looking too. It's C. Magneri (C. granulosa x L. tenebrosa) x Rl. (B.) digbyana. It will be going to the National Capitol show in Washington DC this weekend.

    I agree with Jeff, it seems to have taken all the bad points from all the parents, buts its kinda unique.

    Unusual but cool. I very much like the feathered lip. I guess beauty is in the eye...as they say.
