    Dends in Love? Yeah rigtht...

    I can just picture the beastie. All 400 spikes joining leaves and singing a stirring chorus of Kum ba Yah. Something like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

    It doesn't erase my memories of the Phal tipping!

    A Dends Chorus singing a stirring Kum ba Yah! Oh dear ... (I'd rather see them singing "Dends in Luv"!)
    But that sounds like a fun guy would do, doesn't it? I bet you girls would have a fabulous time with the Dends guy, especially if he is an Aussie! Now now don't you guys begin to admit a bit of feelings for him?

    Tim, have you figured out what kind of paperwork involved for sending a few precious bareroot australian dendrobium orchids to the US? Certain nurseries who export them would now!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Mildred in Luv

    Sheeeee's opening! Both buds have swelled and have miniscule separation between the petals!!! She's going to open, she's going to open! I'll just have to stare harder to speed the process...

    I've never been accused of possessing an over-abundance of patience...

    Default Cattleya warnerii var. coerulea 'Henrique'

    This plant is one of my "precious", ahem prized acquisitions. It is named after the guy (Henrique) who collected it from the jungle and I actually got it from him! Probably one of the best C. warnerii coerulea clones I have ever seen and even the orchid hunter agrees (he has seen many hundreds of these plants) and that is the reason he named it after himself! This plant has darker and more uniform coerulea coloration on the flowers and the longevity of the blooms also surpises me very much!
    This coerulea clone also has one of the most amazing fragrances that I know as well. Everytime you walk by the blooming plant, the strong yet alluring sweet and perfumy scent of the flowers does not want to leave you! It gently taps into your senses and whispers "Visit me, Love me and Forget me Not". After taking a whiff, you could not help but linger and reminisce of the heavenly kiss.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Mildred in Luv or Julie in Luv? I can not tell the difference! Hehehe!!!
    Isn't that fun watching the orchid flowers slowly open? Back in the ancient days when it was more romantic, the intellectual class of the old China and the Orient had the joy of watching orchids and other prized flowers open. They threw tea parties for the occasion and had a gathering of close friends to watch it happening in front of their eyes. As they watched the flowers opening very slowly, they would compose poetry to celebrate the occasion and to entertain each other while sipping tea and warm sake and watching the moon ...

    Default Blc. Baghdad's Magic 'Winchester' AM/AOS

    A pure yellow clone of the big catts! A very rare plant! My old friend at the orchid society who has been collecting cattleyas for the last >50 years told me a long time ago when he gave the plant to me that this plant had not been ever offered for judging and if ever submitted for judging, it should easily get an AM/AOS. Apparently it already happened since I just found out right before posting the pictures. The color, the size and the shape of the flowers are very pleasing to the eyes, they are full, elegant and symmetric, unlike certain recent pure yellow Taiwanese catt imports, which I think look so garish! Interesting fragrance too!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Lovely floof, Hoa! Great stories too!

    I do show that the Baghdad's Magic is registered as a Potinara, however (B x C x L x S). It's Blc. Golden Slippers x Pot. Lemon Tree. The AM/AOS was awarded in '97. It read, "Three round, full formed flowers of spectacular golden yellow colors displayed well above foliage on one inflorescence; sepals and center of lip deeper golden yellow."

    Yeah...I'm hoping Mildred's in luv. I surely am!

    And it's all your e-VEAL fault!

    Julie,
    Thanks for the info. I am surprised to hear that the Baghdad's Magic is actually a Pot. The very few people that I know who have the plant, all use the Blc. genus name!

    Julie in LUV!!! Hehehe! With Mildred!!! Julie in LUUVV!!! Hey, you should thank the matchmaker! Don't call him E-VEAL! Hehehe!!!

    Default Blc. Williams Stewart

    This plant is kept in the collection mainly because of the unusual shape of the flower and the assymetric picotee edge of the lip. It also smells like saffron, the most expensive spice in the world!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Matchmakers wouldn't be matchmakers, if they didn't have an e-VEAL streak!

    We need to get you on a vege diet, boy! Probably wouldn't hurt the Speedo, either...
