    Default How's this for floof?

    Hey there all--happy holidays. Sorry, I've been an absentee poster for awhile. You know how life just gets crazy--anyway . . .



    How's this for all you floof fans?
    Blc. Pamela Finney (although it probably isn't a Blc anymore )
    The spread of the flower is just over 8 inches and it smells heavenly.

    I have BLC Pamela Finney 'Big Bull' and it is probably in my top three favorite catts. Mine blooms in Feb/March

    Love the smell and the size on this one! I call her "My Big Drag Queen!"

    Hey Sadie,
    You call it floof, I call it beautiful. I grew up with floofs and love them all especially the Finneys (Irene and Pamela) These were from the old famous orchid houses that I remember from years ago. And Clint, if you are reading this, I wore an Irene Finney as a boutinere on New Years Eve when I was a bit gayer than now.
    Happy New Year to you all,
    Andy Golley
