    Talking Toot! Toot!

    Sometimes it is OK to toot your own horn , right?
    The Brassia (actually a brassidium cross-- too lazy to write out full name at this point) I have in the photo archives is in bloom. I bought it 2 years ago at the local auction. The flowers then were about 6" from top to bottom. This bloom (it didn't bloom last season) the flowers boast a full 12" from top to bottom!! They are incredibly huge and wonderfully fragrant.
