    Default Odbrs. Kenneth Bivens 'Santa Barbara' HCC /AOS x Brs. Rex 'Tahoma' AM/AOS

    This is the first time this has bloomed in nearly three years. The first few months I had it, it bloomed twice, but with not nearly as much gusto as this time. Would of been eleven flowers, but when the buds were still young and tender some giant human being came along and knocked four of them off (After this I go around the green house saying things like fee- fi- fo -fom, I smell the blood of a clumsy one). Will post one more photo when all seven buds bloom. Long spike..................AL Name:  Odbrs. Kenneth Bivens 'Santa Barbara x Rex 'Tahoma' 004.JPG

    Beautiful - I love a good spider! Seeing your photos has made me even more impatient to see my two flower again - I didn't have one flower last year either
