    Default Blooming around the yard

    I was surprised by a couple of spring bloomers, Ascocentrum Miniatum and D Banana Royale. Both have decided to burst forth with a small but beautiful fall bloom. A couple of fall Catts are also demonstrating how lovely they are LC Mildred Rives,and BLC Michael Gaine "Good Fortune" VERY Fragrant.

    I like them all. Very impressive variety and I don't think its a overstatement to say a real riot of colors. AL

    Some beauties you have there, Cin! I haven't seen a Den Banana Royale in at least a decade! I had one once but, alas, it has been dead and gone for years now. It had a distinctively honey-like fragrance.
