    Cool Potinara Samantha Duncan 'Sweet Kiss' and a no name Cattleya

    I was glad my Samantha Duncan flowers opened this morning before my mom left to go back home. The plant was a gift from my Aunt Katherine, during her last visit a couple years ago. I have a few white, yellow, red and orange flowers open, but most of the back porch is pink right now. lol I love my pink flowers! I need to go back and look up the name of my pink flower as I have it from an earlier post. I am just tired from my two weeks of company. Shopping and sight seeing was fun, but i'm worn out!

    I had given it to Rich when I first got it as I was worried I would kill the poor thing. He did a great job with it and made my job a ton easier! It was a relief when it began blooming so I could reassure my aunt I hadn't killed it. lol

    I looked up the pictures of C. Fitz Eugene Dixon and totally agree. Thank You for giving a name to this beauty! It came from a lady that only has the oldest and nicest crosses and the information on the flower matches with what you would find on her benches. I will be able to give it a proper tag finally...
