    Default Blc Mickey's Freckles 'Pinkie' x Epi randii

    I got this one today as a consolation plant since the big floofy catt I went to obtain at a wholesale grower's open house was not available (actually, they did have it hidden in a back greenhouse but it looked like hell and wasn't for sale anymore. To think I passed it up in December when it was specimen sized and gorgeous and for sale in full bloom. )

    Anyway, back to this little one that I found hidden amongst some other common things at another place. She made me smile, so she came home with me.

    I love her, Ronnie-Sue. You say she's little. How small are the blooms? (I love the minis and compacts!)

    What a sweetie! I'd much rather have her than a big floofy catt.

    Julie, the blossoms are about 2.5" across and the pbs are about 2" tall excluding leaves. The whole plant including leaves is about 9" tall.

    I was going for the floofy catt because the scent was so intoxicating. This one seems to have no scent, but she's so darn cute! I'm happy with her.

    What pretty blooms. I love the spots. I'm sure the one you went to the grower for was fabulous, but this one was definitely worth the trip too.

    I agree! The size and flower are really wonderful - she steals my heart too!

    Congrats! A great find!

    (RVO has a Dogashima catt that does this for me too - another cutie!)

    Thanks for the affirmations (enabling?) and sharing the neato factor with me.

    LOL! "Enabling the neato factor" I like the ring that has.

    You made a really nice choice with this one, Ronnie-Sue.
