    Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone... In my haste to share, I didn't realise that the flower wasn't quite finished doing it's thing and well.. it looks very different now with all the twisty petals... will post an update when some of the other flowers open!

    Sorry to hear abut your experience with Paphs Tanya.... I don't think I could ever give up any of mine for adoption... I am just a Paph addict!!

    Cheers

    p.s. sorry for disappearing for awhile (busy work - yuk yuk)... not much time to actually sit and say hello. To all our newbies... welcome y'all... and also to say how beautiful everyone's plants and flowers are... I know, I know... I love them all... so if I don't say it on the post, doesn't mean I didn't think it is beautiful! Ciao bela!
