    Red face My Favorite Antelope ~ But What's Her Name?

    Hi everyone, it's been too long since I've been by here, shame on me.
    I had a little 'puter meltdown, and lost all of my bookmarks . . .
    not much of an excuse, but it's all I got.
    Every now and then I bump into a site and think "Hey! I know this place!!"

    So, I found you lovely peeps again, and here I am, begging favors, right off the bat.

    Anyhow, as the title says, this is my favorite antelope,
    a NOID plant I'm afraid - but I sure would like to hang an accurate tag on her
    if one of you clever folks recognize her.


    She started blooming over 6 weeks ago, and is just showing signs of tailing off now.



    And while I have you looking, I'll impose on your kindness a bit further,
    here's another which I'd like to tag, if you can help me,
    also sort of antelope-ish, I think - same color story,
    but this one has big, fat ears and a wonderfully textured "tongue".



    Many thanks, in advance.

    the number of these crosses made for the "pot" trade is mind staggering. You may not be able to correctly ID these but they are beauties!

    The lip is just beautiful, it reminds me of the petals and sepals on my ascda 'blue boy'.

    Thanks for taking a look, and for the nice words.
    I guess I'll just have to make up a couple of names. *lol*
