    Default Lc. Lorraine Shirai 'Raye' x Blc. Dickie Brooks 'Autumn Symphony'

    Hello everyone,
    Have you ever seen that "one orchid" that you would climb Mount Everest in order to add it to your collection. This was the "one" for me. I saw it at my orchid-guy's green house and had a fit (actually it was more like a spasm) over it and simply HAD to have it. He gave me the name of the nursery that he acquired it from, and luckily after much pleading, they still had it in stock and sent me a mature plant. Love it! Can't wait for it to bloom.
