    Smile Cattleya Clear Morn 'Purity'

    This white cattleya orchid was waiting for me this afternoon. I took some shots of it where it was growing and then got it down to count the blooms and see how they looked up close. I love white orchid blooms and this is one of my favorites from early in my orchid collection. Enjoy...

    Is indeed is a very beautiful white cattleya. I also enjoy white Catts, they seem to remind me of purity and how the simplest of things put up in the right way can be mesmerizing.

    It's hard to find the white catt's with the almost pure white lip...i'll find one down here someday. In the meantime i'll stare at your pics.
