    Mokara Luenberger Gold. Only about three flowers , but this is a first spike on a plant not a lot more than 6 inches high - bought as a three inch span seedling from you know who's auction site. A different colour than my other ( few) Mokaras.
    Vanda Black Magic x Ascda Gua Chia Long ; the latter is now quite well known as a spotty flower ; I have one of the actual grex ( GCL on its own) and like it, so naturally I buy its offspring when I see it. The Vanda input has probably increased the flower size, I have to say probably, because they are all flowering with smaller han usual flowers at the moment - UK has just had its wettest year ever recorded - I have had almost 60 inches of rain, and the average for this area is about 30 inches , so naturally the sunshine hour count must be way down too. The other effect here is that the flower is a darker more brick red colour than GLC on its own.
    The small flowered brown coloured one is Ascda Khun Nok - I think this is the clone "Nakathun" - the first Ascda I ever raised from a compot, 20+ years ago. Growing nicely - ought to have more than 1 spike I'm sure - lack of sunshine again I expect.
    By a coincidence the fourth one - although I fear my comments are not in the same order as the flowers - just to confuse everyone ! is the bright pink flower, also a Black Magic cross - here with V Chavanand , which makes V.Dona Isabel Bosch. Quite small - not a olot over 5 or 6 cm , but maybe still developing.

    All really nice. I have the Khun Nok but the 'Weezie' clone I've raised from a very small plant.

    Congrats Geoff, all beautiful blooms, most outstanding, and the one that will be going on my ever increasing 'wish-list' is the Ascda. Klun Nok with its two tone petals.. Never seen one like that before.
    Yes, the weather patterns all pver the world, it seems, have been topsy turvy last year. The rains have gone on for 8 days with no sunshine and it has certainly affected the quality of some of my Catts. and Vandas.
    Good growing.

    That comes from V.lamellata var boxallii in the parentage, Angela. You should look out for it, I'm sure you will grow it well and love it. Same pattern, but in white with pink patches.

    Congratulations Geoff. They are all very beautiful. I'm very partial to orange esp the Guo Chia Long crosses. Love the Ascda Khun Nok, one of my favourites.
