    Default When I got home #2

    This guy has turned out much better than I hoped, considering the coloration of the parents. This photo is very true to color on my screen. This is a first bloom for me, I have seen photos of it's siblings. Most of the offspring of this cross have been much more to the green and yellow side. I happen to be a softy for any of the tan/honey/pale mahogany colors. No name for this one yet. I'll look up the cross and post it.

    It is 6" across, just over 5" tall.

    BTW - Perhaps you could come over and take pictures the next time I have something worth photographing....These shots are about as good as I get with my old digi cam....
