A cattleya full of cheer

6 11 2009

I’ve been down with a seasonal bug, but this cattleya plant cheered me up. This morning I noticed five new fragrant blooms that weren’t open last night. This orchid has been in our collection for years and seems to have adapted well to the culture here. Its label is long gone, so I can’t pass on the correct name. I thought you might imagine its sweet scent and enjoy the flowers too.
