    Default Blc Laura Bush 'Carmela' blooming

    The best for last. <G>

    I bought this and an Eplc. type Catt. a couple years ago, and this is the first time it has bloomed. I couldn't even remember what it was supposed to look like. LOL There is another plant behind it with a single bud on it.

    This has to be the king of my collection. I just stand there and stare at it. I'm floored. The lip is a rich purple color, which was hard to capture, especially in the black background pictures. The first picture is with my iPhone, and probably the closest on the lip and other colors. The other three came out with too reddish.

    Hope you enjoy this, because I sure do!
