    Yes, not Nelly Isler, but it is a dend. And the color is really rich. It looks very nice.

    Cheers,

    Thank you!

    Almost all flowers are open now, only 3 buds to go. One spike but the individual blooms are considerably larger this time. The weather's been nice and sunny recently so it's very fragrant

    Absolutely! The only thing nicer than a pretty orchid is a smelly, pretty orchid

    Except I just noticed a huge bumblebee outside the window

    So who won the battle for the affections of the pretty smelly orchid (you know if you read that the wrong way it takes on a whole new meaning) the bumblebee or you Elena?

    Alas, I am not the biggest fan of winged insects just at the moment. Or cats for that matter. This aftrenoon one of the cats noticed something fluttering outside, jumped on the windowsill and sent my Ascocenda flying in the process. There's some damage on the leaves and the spike so I'll have to wait and see if the buds survive or not

    Aaaah, yes I am familiar with unintentional bad cat syndrome.

    Fortunately, my fat one has moved onto rubbing herself over an avocado that's about 1 foot high. (I planted it in August last year to see what happened) so for now the orchids are slightly more safe.

    It doesn't stop me holding my breath whenever she decided to walk through the pots rather than around!

    Well, the spike and the buds seem okay still so the cat might be out of the...erm... doghouse.

    Naugty cats, I have numerous plants with teeth marks on them. I think it's only the cacti that have a quiet life here
