    Lovely colors and graceful form, and scent too... very nice. If you would like to shorten your tag, Wattana Gold x Orange Nugget is Rth. (or Pot.) Sunny June.

    I think the pretty color and sparkley petals are trying to make up for the other flowers not blooming. This one stands out...nice! We don't seem to have a "bad" time of year for orchids other than maybe the month or two it actually gets chilly.

    Nice to see you around Michael. Thats beautiful, but the walkeriana is soo dominant !! It completely blocks all the orange nugget and wattana gold influence. Personally I would have liked a more orange with this nice shape, nonetheless this is a beauty !

    Hi Michael!! Great looking orchid. I love Cattleya Walkeriana and this hybrid is a wonderful new look with the Blc. Orange Nugget. Wish I could smell the fragrance too.

    cheers,
