    Default 'Romeo' and the mutt

    Blooming now, BLC Husky Boy 'Romeo'
    I received this last year as a Valentine's Day gift, notice the heart (albeit inverted) in the lip.
    I know, I know, "Awwwww, isn't that sweeeeeet" *gag*

    And, to be honest, I have no idea what it is, or where it came from,
    but the "mutt" is proof that an orchid can be downright homely.
    If it didn't have such a delicious scent, even I would probably dump it.
    But this guy absolutely fills the glasshouse with a fruity fragrance
    that is like a cross between citrus and fresh cut melon, so . . .

    I largely prefer the first yellow one to see !

    But if you find a way to bring to my computer the fruity fragnance why not the second one

    Both are cute blooms, even the one you call "mutt"!

    Yup, it's kinda hard to believe that this is really what the breeder was hoping for, huh?

    Hey Ellie,

    Have you read the book, or seen the movie, "Because of Winn Dixie?" Mutts can be loveable and bring in good income!

    To the mutts in our lives!

    those splash petalled catts are like vini paphs--either you love them or you really hate them. I'm afraid to say I'm from the latter camp, but that first one has a really nice clear yellow color...
