    Default Blc Mem Helen Brown hybrid

    The tag reads; Blc. Mem. Helen Brown 'Sweet Afton' X Blc. Goldenzelle 'Afrikan Safari'. I've nicknamed it Sweet Afrikan, for short. And yes it's huge for this shaped flower. I took a picture of the three plants I bought today, sitting together to show how large this flower is.

    Since the move and my recent pay-raise...something mysterious has happened to my husband. He now says things like...do you need another shelf? (after helping install wheels on the others so we can wheel them into the garage when needed), is that one a cattleya, it's is nice too...and when another box arrives from my vendor in Hawaii he brings the scissors with the box and never complains. I'm not sure if it will last, but i'm making the best of it. lol He's also been talking about helping me build something out back for the cold weather...I may get a greenhouse before it's over!
