    Thumbs up Rlc. (Rlc. Goldenzel x Cattleya Blondie) 'Betty'

    This beautiful yellow orchid was a gift from Betty (espranch) here in the forum - SO I gave it a cultivar name to reflect the former grower. What a beautiful gift! (glad I got it to bloom!!) I am really surprised this orchid has not been named yet. Great cross! Thanks Betty!!

    That is absolutely beautiful. Is it fragrant too (since that is one of the tags)?

    Bruce,
    I am BLOWN AWAY...I am actually in tears ( happy tears ) I can't believe that an orchid is really named after ME! A thousand THANK YOU'S. That was so thoughtful of you...I am so glad that you like it. No one's ever done ANYTHING like this for me...
    Your Friend, Betty

    Betty, one of my great pleasures in growing orchids is remembering the friends who have traded plants or sent me plants along the way. You told me when you gave me this division that it was one of your all time favorites. This way, when I look at the orchid and tag, I will always remember the lady who gave it to me.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Betty, a beautiful flower for a beautiful person! Seems to make sense to me. Bruce, wonderful sentiments and to both of you I like this orchid flower and its new cultivar name. AL
