    Default eria ovata, philippines

    hi guys,

    finally something different in my garden. this eria has a strong scent, it makes you wanna sniff, but its not all too pleasant the closer you get. still, i kept on sniffing, some vodoo??? i read in another forum and the fragrance was discribed as "flamingo poo", well THAT i wouldnt know, lol.

    enjoy,
    btw, the bloom in reality is more whitish then on the pix, blame the flash!

    Very pretty, but I don't think I want to sniff it...

    That is pretty - unfortunate about the fragrance. I guess they can't all be lovely though.

    Cheers,
