My first non-carnosa bloom!!!
And it is Ruby Sue!!! I love the scent - reminds me of lilacs - and even better, there are three more peducles. Plain lacunosa is next to it and it has about a dozen. Talk about anticipation!
Also, a second fabulous find...
There is a phenomenal orchid green house about two miles from my home and I occasionally wander in for the color and fragrance. I was there today and he had a variegated kerri! It was huge and he sold me a 6 node cutting (with leaves!) for $10.00! Although it is not on my wish list, I had to buy it. I've cut it into three sections and its in a baggie. I'm a bit apprehensive - my house is still cool at night - but I am hoping for the best.
