    I had admired the picture Hoa posted of his, and when he pointed out a group of them for sale, I snatched up the only one with buds, and voila!

    Really nice. I think I like the Catts. Am I correct in thinking that these are the flowers for corsages?

    It's a classic, from the "old" days. If you look at movies from the 30's and 40's they would have used similar types of Catts. Later on then went for the bigger, rounder hybrids..

    ooh that is lovely! Nice colouration, and I find that the more open shape also lends itself to a very different type of beauty when it comes to these Catts... and frankly, there's still plenty of floof there to get anyone excited!

    C. schroderae needs no apology! She's a beauty! Graceful and understated in ways the hybrids trounce upon. Sometimes in our quest for newness we lose sight of the beauty of simplicity and elegance.

    She's wonderful, Diane! An excellent acquisition.

    The blooms are exceptional, understated but confident in its gorgeous beauty! The lip coloring is beautiful! The light shade of pink is also most pleasing to the eyes! There is no mistake in this acquisition!
    BTW, this is a great photoshot, postcard worthy! What do you guys think?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Just gorgeous and very much postcard picture-worthy I think.

    And look at that - another Hoa inspired purchase (thank goodness he doesn't live in Miami!!)
