    Default Blc. Sanyan Ruby 'SM'

    Only 2 flowers this blooming... but the fragrance is as much a knockout as ever. Between this guy, the Chunyeah and the C. Imperialis cross in bloom the house smells great! It has probably been smelling great for a few days, but this is the first day my nose has be "open for business". (That's Sanyang Ruby....)

    Oh..like velvet! IT is beautiful. What phal is that in the back? It looks so flat - good form.

    Phal Aurelia 'Franklin'. It has a nice second spike coming... which is good since when I was watering phals this weekend I knocked a nice big bud off my Cat's Paw....

    I love the purple edges of the floof! Very lovely!

    Cassie, my monster Lycaste is opening, but I'll wait for a few more buds to open before I photo shoot. She's a looker, but will be spectacular in another week or so. Alas, no fragrance I can detect yet.

    Wow, Diane, that's gorgeous! How big is the plant? The flowers look huge. The fuschia and yellow is an awesome color combo. Striking!
    PS - glad your feeling better. What is the fragrance like?
