    Default Slc Angel's Fantasy

    I can't honestly say it's my fantasy but was apparently someone's. I'm not a fan of the flowers' form. I do however like the firey colors. I think I would like it more if this hybrid was crossed to an Encyclia or a Catt that would result in a smoother/simpler, more elegant form to the flower's overall shape. The colors, btw, are quite accurate in this pic.

    Very vibrant! I think the colors are just fantastic, although I find the pink a bit much! But, I do love it's shape!
