    You are not kidding. The more I look at this one, the more I like it. I guess I was still jet-lagged when I first saw it. It really does have a good shape. Hopefully the petals with flatten out more as it ages a bit.

    Thanks all for looking and and your kind comments!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Wow, Bruce! What a looker! The prim influence comes through in the pouch, but those petals are all roths and lowii! Look at that wingspan!

    By the way, you're beauty has a name! Paph Hampshire Child. And since I live right next door to New Hampshire and you don't, you'll simply have to send it to me, LOL!

    I saw a Prime Child x sandy cross today that really, really got me thinking. Thus far, I've resisted, LOL, but the jury's not out!

    I love the simplicity of the color scheme, the grace of the wings and the overall shape of the flower; just beautiful!
