    Default Phal. Lone Star and Dtps. Brother Chameleon

    Here we go again...because the lady had told me her truck of new plants straight from the greenhouses would be arriving this morning. I made a beeline for her store to get 1st pick and came home with two amazing phals to grace the living room. It really was not difficult at all to choose the first plant; Dtps. Brother Chameleon 'DeLeon's Wish'. The flower opened already was obviously the biggest flower on the bench. And as I have drooled over an oncid called Marfitch something looks so much like this strange flower it had to come home. The second, a large healthy 3 spiker, Phal Lone Star Fantasia 'Deleons #3', has amazing red tone that catches my eye from across the room. While the flowers aren't as large as the first plant, they are every bit as pretty. The table that sits in the living room window is looking very colorful with it's 3 new phals. I'm going to have to start celebrating my birthday 2 weeks early, this is just so much more fun!!

    First the 'DeLeon's Wish'

    Second; 'DeLeon's #3' I actually hadn't noticed the similarities in their names until listing them on here.

    That is an inspiration! I am feeling the need for some instant gratification...maybe I better check out some sites and 'excersize' my plastic.

    Oops... My jaw just fell... Had to put it back...
    I must say they are complexly beautiful!... The first one is like a young butterfly emerging from the chrysalis... And for the second one, I've always been a big fan of striped, speckled phals... Congrats on buying these lovely phals and happy birthday!...
