    Cool Blc. Volcano Blue

    Between me being sick and my gal not being at work...it took a little longer to id this lovely blue cattleya than I thought it would. This is the plant I bought when Pat, Cathy and I went shopping...over a week ago. The flowers are still lovely and it gives off a delicate scent. I put one picture in to show size of flowers. They aren't large compared to the size of the plant.

    ...and of course one with flash. This flower's fun to photograph. It shows different levels of blue with changing levels of light.

    Oh, Connie, this one is so lovely. Your orchids are always beautiful but this one has to be one of my favorites.

    How beautiful, Connie! I just bought a new catt that looked like it would be a stunner and it is, but I'm worried it has all sort of muck on it. I'll post it on a different thread - maybe you can tell me which muck I should be worrying about and which is just the usual catt-stuff.

    Thanks e1...this plant seriously had me that day. I kept going back and finally gave in and bought it without the tag. The blue laelia crosses get me every time...lol. I love the shape and color.
