    Default Bllra. Tropic Tom 'Kinky' and Gdlra. Pacific Truffle 'Surrogate Star'

    I have posted alot of pics lately; but these are from my husband. He was so sweet, got these to make me smile after two days of doctor appointments. They look so much alike I thought they were the same plant just different colors. (Gdlra=Goodaleara = Brassia x Cochlioda x Miltonia x Odontoglossom x Oncidium)

    My Colmanara Wildcat bloomed this morning, and to show the size I thought I'd use it for comparison.

    They begin pouring the cement for the sunroom Monday and by the following Monday it should be almost completely built and done. They'd better hurry at the rate I'm buying these things lately. lol

    Such beautiful blooms and such a thoughtful husband! Must show this post to my wife. Been to see my opthamologist yesterday for the routine checkup on the macular degeneration of the left eye.Wonder if that entitles me to another orchid.

    Oh yeah, it's in the rulebooks! Any discomfort, doctor or dentist related is a reasonable excuse for orchid gifts to be showered on you. Make sure you tell her right away! he he

    Thanks, Connie. Showed your post to the wife and she insists she saw the same rulebook and it definitely says 'husband' not 'wife' or even 'spouse'. So...........
