    so pretty!
    i love the red on the petals, the creamy yellow on the pouch,
    those little pouch speckles,
    the sweep of the dorsal.
    everything

    for similarities,
    it reminds me of a smoother, less curly version of Bouley Bay
    (yet another Eric Young hybrid: Eric Eoung x Grande)
    I like the predominance of Eric Young hybrids,
    and haven't found a bad one yet.

    Thanks again!

    I just came back in from the GH; turns out I have four of these and not two. I had labeled two others with the cross instead of the grex name, and had overlooked them. (Why do I always get sidetracked with keeping current on labeling? Need to pay more attention to that...)

    Anyway, the buds on these other two are just filling out at the tip of the spike, so if anyone wants to try one, I'm putting them up on the website this afternoon for 38, in bud.

    It's very pretty. And you DO ship directly to Washington...have to drop hints tomorrow during Mother's Day. Was so busy figuring out what to get MY mom, I didn't do much hinting for myself!

    Well, Louis, the answer is obvious. You need to hire more staff! Hey, how about me? I'd work cheap. (And in my spare time, I could comb the Arkansas river bottomland for Ivory-billed Woodpeckers.) LOL

    Cheers,

    Rob
