    Gilda, you had me worried for a second there,
    all your blooms are usually top-notch,
    and this one's no exception.
    I like the solid dark color, and how nicely it
    contrasts with the white.
    what a big, beautiful bloom.

    The tag line -- what a dog sucked me in. I was expecting one of those, well "special" orchids -- the kind that probably have a snooty-flalooty pedigree but are really pretty ugly.

    This one -- what a beauty. I LOVE bulldogs. Maybe like bell bottom pants the bulldog will become uber-popular once more.
