    Beauties, Angela! Great growing - and I mean that with a solid heart, because I grew Laddawan Beauty for 3 years and never was able to coax it to bloom. The thing was HUGE, too. Put out at least 5-6 pseudobulbs a year. Well done! I always wondered what it would look like, and now I know!

    Absolutely stunning. Two of my favorite color combinations for cattleyas. Is that first by any chance Blc. Alma Kee 'Tipmalee'? Do you have a name for the lavender?

    I see you added names to the post. Alma Kee 'Tipmalee' is one of my all time favorite yellows. It's such an elegant looking orchid to me. The only thing it lacks is fragrance (at least mine has never been fragrant). I have to admit that big cattleyas are still my favorite orchids when they're in bloom.
