    This is the "Double Sheathed Catt", the real name is way too long. 4 blossoms, 7" tall, 6" wide. Fragrant.

    My Tainon City General. Just fully opened today. 5.5" bloom. Beautiful bright red color.

    Appologies for the poor photography. I guess it's just not my 'thing'.

    They're all so amazing and the colours really give em their individuality! Can't decide on a fave between the colour changer and fire engine!

    As for the photography, I think you've done as good as any I could have done, the only thing I could think of to add is the black background and then you'll be taking photos like Jason, ntgerald, Louis etc etc...
