    Cool Blc. Keowee 'Newberry'

    I repotted this about year ago and it took forever to stop sulking. This is my first nice blooming. I don't mind the single bud on each p'bulb either. The flowers are nice and large and the perfume is wonderful!

    We are literally days away from our construction nightmare being over...maybe. So far they have failed two inspections...lol. In the meantime I keep working with my orchids.

    Nice job blooming it! I found it to be slow grower too, as it hasn't given me that much new p-bulbs after I repotted it.

    Those are a nice perk-up from the hassle of construction chaos.

    Beautiful Connie, So Cheerful! I just ordered 'Mendenhall' and it should be here by the end of the week! Once again, we seem to enjoy the same 'chids.
    Best,
    Tony
