Went to the London Show on Friday , bought a few nice things, two of which are shown here - the third is one in my collection for a couple of years ( Amazon Trick)
The spotty is CTT Siamese Doll "Kiwi Fruit"( strange name for the cultivar ! )
The dark red with the horizontally arranged flowers ( actually at least two spikes, and a third one opening soon ) is Slc ( now CTT) Little Hazel.
The other dark red with the flowers more vertically arranged is Lc ( also now CTT) Hsiang-Yu Red Pearl "Red Dragonfly"
Amazon Trick is of course a seedling of the well known Trick or Treat , just back crossed onto L.cinnabarina , and not very different.
A disappointment at the show was the non-showing of a Taiwan dealer with my pre-order of a dozen or so interesting species of various genera. When I got home, I found an e-mail telling me my plants could be collected from another dealer... but with a three hour journey I could not turn round and go back, and it was impossible for me to go again the next day.
I suppose this is a lesson, that I should get with it and get a smart phone, instead of the simple primitive mobile which I don't even bother to switch on ( it's to get me out of a hole - late arrival, or call a taxi etc. rather than for people to call me - old man's thinking I guess ! ) for then I would or could have read the email at the show - whatever, I have ordered one, although I expect I shall have to wait for my great-grandson to teach me how to use it....
Love the Little Hazel!
Geoff, all your plants are beautiful!, but from you I never expect less than perfection!
Geoff, very nice. It is a shame about your order though.
Old but unique so beautiful.
They're all beautiful! I especially like the CTT Siamese Doll. I've never seen that one before.
LOVE all of these beautiful and well bloomed cattleya orchids.
Lovely things !! Geoff you will pick up on the smart phone very easily, no doubt about it.
Love the vivid colors on these -- especially the spotty and that first red!
Don't feel bad about your cell phone state, Geoff -- I have only an archaic cell that sits in my car. Not even sure if it still has a charge or even works. Guess I should check that though -- it is, after all, there as an emergency phone in case the auto breaks down or such.
By the way, your photography is excellent also.
