Gotta love these big blooms on compact plants.
OHHHHH MYYYY GAWD I was just browsing and happened on your link, I am not kidding it brought tears to my eyes. The flawless beauty, I feel like a deprived kid looking in a candy store window. I wish I had 1/100th of your talent!
Thank you for the peek at your treasures. Deanna
Me, too, Deanna! (the tears in the eyes part) All of CharlesB's orchids are so very lovely, magical and enchanting.
I am relieved that the new Pbase server allows stalkers like me to constantly show off that this is CharlesB's unforgettable enchanting orchids. When there was a changeover, I wasn't quite able to get the photo onto this thread when I first lurked, but here it is now. (the HTML code translates).
I just wish I could remember orchid names. They're impossible for me to remember, it's not like rose names (sigh!). All I can do is go blab on to my rose friends that take a look at CharlesB's fantastic purple orchid (you get the idea, LOL, LOL!).
OK. I am practicing now, here is CharlesB's Laelia Pumilla Beaver Valley....
Am I getting better? ask me a month later from now, LOL, LOL!
For those of you who don't already know this, CharlesB's link has the opening photo and if you double click that photo, it will show you a wealth of gorgeous, gorgeous orchids, each one always takes my breath away no matter how countless of times I lurk and stalk, LOL!
