    Beautiful . Equestris are such great plants. The flowers don't tend to last real long, but there are lots and they just keep coming .

    Thanks susan I had a feeling they didnt look like they were going to be long lasting ones but there are more buds developing so I should have flowers for a while, It sure was worth the wait. It is roasting here today I have just been out in the garden a while and had to come back In I am too hot would be ideal to get my catts out but I am not going to be home till after midnight tonight so I cant leave them out then as its forecast to go rather cold, summer is coming, though I wont be saying that with the forecast storms on monday if they happen LOL

    I like pictures of buds; I think they're cute like baby pictures. The flowers are very pretty too.

    I like white blooms, and you have a pretty one. I love it. My own alba is more of the aurea type, with a gold colored lip.

    Thank you everyone I am so glad you like her, I will be adding the normal lilac coloured equestris to my wishlist as I dont have one but must admit I am rather fond of this little one. Thats interesting ntgerald that there are even more colour variations on the alba just like the regular equestris, yours sounds beautiful also.
