    Hurray for you, Bobby. Very pretty yellow. Does it have a fragrance? Just to offer some unsolicited advice - if you photograph it with the light facing it and a dark background behind it, you get brighter, clearer colors as well as images. I learned this when I was first photographing my orchids and it has taken me a lot of time and work to discover how to photograph them best. I'm still learning a lot - no expert, just an avid enthusiast.
