    Default Ascda Peggy Foo 'Pink' X Vasco Tham Yuen 'Blue Queen'

    This is a funny little bloom. You see many undertones of several colors from blue, purple, pink and salmon. All depends on the age of the bloom as to what color is more prevalent. Very prolific bloomer.

    You have a wonderful collection of vandacous orchids. Congatulations on another beauty. I see 'Peggy Foo' in a lot of crosses. I wonder what it was about that vanda that made it so desirable for breeding?

    Cute blooms there, Cathy! It can be quite cool to have flowers change through a range of colors -- especially when there are a large number of them of different ages

    Lovely blooms. Vasco Tham Yuen Hae does have this tendency to impart the 'undertones' that you mentioned to its progenies. Depending on the angle and quality of the light it is really very difficult to describe the colour of the blooms, let alone try to capture the 'correct' colour on camera.
