    I have been adding more Milts to my collection lately , and many have come from the breeding programme at the Eric Young Foundation. Their object in life is to win awards ( that is what their Trust deed says - I'll do a piece about them some time when I have made my scanner work - or found time to understand it - and can scan some slides I took on a visit there some years ago ). But effectively they sell plants to the trade, which they don't need for breeding ( or for their own displays) and a local dealer knows my interest and lets me know when they have anything from them. This one is added to my collection just this week. I'll hope to produce far more flowers next year , it is still a small plant.

    Great orchid blooms, Geoff. My one Miltonia looks to have finally died. It is just way to hot here to grow these beauties well. I had one for several years that struggled along and bloomed regularly for us, but now, it appears to be on his way out. So sad. I love the big, fragrant blooms.

    Cheers,
    BD

    That's so beautiful! I love the way the colors run together - like ink blots. There's a Rorschach test in there, right?
