    Oh, trust me...Doc Spock is cruel and E-VEAL, despite his claims of innocence!

    And dear old Doctor, perchance, might some of the floofy Catts in bloom here be neither floofy nor Catts???

    Still, they're all great flowers, representing intimidatingly fine growing, and fun to see. Thanks!

    Now on to pics of nekkid cycling, please!

    Do you know, considering the e-veal and enabling nature of this thread I think we should all start invoicing Hoa for all the floofy Catt purchases that result from it

    Naked cycling? I'll refrain from making any floof jokes, I think

    Okay, who can remember what thread had the nekkid cycling? The newer members must be initiated!

    Hey McE-VEAL and Elena and Kerry,
    A quick response here ...

    I am so not E-VEAL nor cruel ... Hehheheee ... that is all yours doing ... And don't blame me on your downward slide into the orchid abyss ... I am only entertaining people with pretty pictures ... Invoice me for all the catts' purchases, now now if that gets expensive, I might have to stop posting all the eye candies, and ya' all don't want that!
    You know, the real purpose of this thread is all about nekkid cycling as McEvealForumAuthor so gladly happily mentioned ... heheheee ... I know where that thread is, who could miss that, huh? I concur with McNekkidRotisserie that maybe it is high time to initiate the newbies into the secrets and mores of the forum? Will someone post those pictures again?

    BTW, here are the names of the orchids in my posts in order of their appearance.
    First post
    1. Lc. Purple Cascade 'Fragrant Beauty'
    2. Blc. Liese Pigors
    3. Lc. Alarcon 'Gran Blue Princess' AM/AOS
    4. C. intermedia var. aquinii var. coerulea
    Second Post
    1. Lc. Mildred Rives FCC/AOS (updated award)
    2. Dendrobium ejirii
    3. Cymbidium tracyanum
    4. Dendrobium Kogane
    Third post
    1. Dendrobium Aussie Aurora
    2. Dendrobium speciosum var. compactum
    3. Cymbidium (Via Mar Tranquila x Hazel Tyres)
    4. Cymbidium Enchanted Beach 'Dusty Maid'
    Fourth post
    1. Dendrobium harveyanum
    2. Renanthera imshootiana
    3. Coelogyne cristata
    4. Tolumnia Just Dandy 'That's Grand'

    Phew ... so many names ... Not all floofs of course but then that is the trick to entice people into checking this thread again ...
    And someone please explain to Kerry where the word 'floof' comes from? It is another term for big frilly cattleyas, very feminine flowers, so gorgeous yet so floofy ...
    Cheers.

    Thank you for posting the names. Lc. Alarcon 'Gran Blue Princess' AM/AOS is an absolute beauty

    I'm intrigued about naked cycling, I just hope it's an initiation ceremony for newbies of some sort

    Default Dialaelia Snowflake

    Hi Elena,
    Now I am sure you have been initiated and are familiar with all the lores and habits of this wacky group. You can tell I have very little to do with all these outrageous antics! Heheheheee ...

    Since I have not posted in this favorite thread of mine for so long (>6 weeks), it is time for me to resurrect this long running thread with more e-veal enabling pictures!

    Let's start out with a non-assuming beauty, Dialaelia Snowflake. This grex is a cross between Laelia albida and the virgin orchid, Diacrum bicornutum (now known as Caularthron bicornutum). This grex has been used in recent hydridizations including the Iwanagara Apple Blossom, a favorite of many members here.

    Default C. Quicksilver

    I am sure I posted this one earlier but I could not resist the beauty of a white catt!

    Default C. skinneri 'Lilac' HCC/AOS

    Spring is the time of the skinneri and many of my skinneri catts have been blooming their heart out. I have posted a few varieties but this one, I have not. This skinneri cultivar is almost blue-ish but it is not. Just for us to see the differences in the hue and shade of color as well as the flower size, I took a picture of the C. skinneri 'Danae' AM/AOS right next to it. So beautiful!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Lc. Straight Answer 'No Question'

    A gorgeous red-splash orange catt! Unusual name but I wonder how that came about? It is the highlight of this posting, I am sure.
    Cheers. Hoa.
