    Beautiful Roy! I know that round is in with "Bulldogs" but I still like the old-style complexes that look like Paphs, like the white one in the background.

    There are many that share your likes with the "old style" paphs Ron. I must admit I have a few coz I like them.

    BTW, looking at an old post of yours of Ang leonis. R U sure it is ?? I just bought one and looking thru all the pics avail, yours is somewhat different to any I've seen.

    really nice collection you have here Roy. My fave is the pink one... still hard to find a pink complex! And this one looks pretty nice! Gotta add that to the wish list I guess...

    Tim, the pink one, Molantis 'Avalon Pearl' I've had for nearly 30 years. I haven't seen it anywhere else. I wouldn't even know where to get it any more. The grower I bought it from left us many years ago.
