    My Valentine's Day orchid. Who knew there was such a thing as a Banfieldara (Ada x Brassia x Odontoglossum)?

    Al--there are 13 blooms, the largest is just a bit over 4 inches.

    Betty--sadly, no scent. I love scented orchids, but with my allergies, I often can smell only the really strong one, or at the time that they are most scented, or I am least stuffy. So, even if it was, I might not know!

    Bruce--yeah, I loved the lip. And, the colors. And the curving petals. When we went to pick one out, I was glad to see they had more than just the usual small group of phals. This one just jumped out from the other orchids and grabbed me.

    Thanks, all.
