    Very lovely, Roy - I like both, but the Loog Tone is very striking - I've only seen them in green.

    Loog tone is one of my favorites, it will turn a lot more yellower soon enough.

    Not much of a fan of pastels. However, I do like the Cattleya Monte Elegant . I think it's the dark spotting creating a nice contrast to the rest of the flower.

    Can't say I've seen a green that stays green maura. This one was when it first opened. They are available in this color, with & without spots, more gold & a burgundy red. Not as eye catching in the burg/red color though, to me anyway.

    You're right, of course, again - my head is pretty scrambled, I guess, with all the traveling and now trying to get Phillip's things in order and re-work the apartment. I probably shouldn't even be touching any orchids, never mind talking about them. There is a mini-catt that I often saw alongside Loog Tone that actually is green, but can't remember the name at the moment (big surprise, I know).

    Both are nice, but Loog Tone always pulls me towards it...I have to get one of those!
