    Cool Lc. Dinard 'Blue Heaven'

    Two days ago I cut the sheath open since it was not letting the buds out and within hours they began to expand and open. There are four flowers and they are amazing. Instead of the usual very yellow throat, this one has two yellow "eyes" on the lip. I am blown away by the quality of the flowers for a first blooming. Once they have been open a week or so I will update. I've not been online a lot recently, and probably will only be in and out once or twice a week for awhile. It has been a challenging summer....

    Nice form for a floof. . The deep color of the lip contrasts nicely with the rest of the flower.

    That's a spectacular cattleya! I love the color and the shape is perfect. My Dinard has never bloomed in the summer. It always blooms around January.

    Gorgeous, Connie! And I know the fragrance is wonderful as well. Mine is in a nursery in PA where it was in the ICU along with my Miltassia victim, if you recall that story about 2 years ago. This reminds me that I need to call them and see what's going on. You say it's been a challenging summer - mine, too. I hope all is well with you. I still harbour dreams of going orchid shopping with you....
