    Ctna. Flying Colors 'Mendenhall'

    All my orchid photos come with dog hair clearly visible because we groom our dogs in orchid room! If I ever conduct a research project that project will be on the impact of abundant dog hair on the growing and blooming of orchids. Based on very unscientific observation I have concluded that my orchids seem to like dogs as roommates!

    I would say they DO like your dogs! Beautiful shots of an outstanding orchid. (Your dog's cute, too.)

    I wonder, though, do you groom your dogs in the orchid room or do you grow orchids in the dogs' salon?

    THE TRUTH IS--- My wife wanted a grooming room but trusted me with the design. The grooming room ended up looking a great deal like s sunroom and the bathing area looks supprisingly like a potting bench. That said, to keep from having to sleep in the room I must say that the orchids grow in a dog spa.

    Very nice, well grown little cattleya. The colors are great. It seems to be doing very well on that mount. Good job.
