    Default Nice to come home to...

    Here are two catts that opened while I was in Arkansas.. Both first blooms for me.


    This one is a cross I'd never heard of, but the parents looked intriguing so I ordered a 4" pot. One parent is solid yellow with the red lip with yellow throat, the other is a lavendar with maroon lip. Don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. But I do love it, and it is slightly fragrant.

    Okay, it's not fully opened, but I had to post it!!

    This one is a division from a stud plant, it is not quite as blue as the picture suggests, although close.

    Both very nice! I love the colors on each of them, as different as they are!
