Finally, all my staring has paid off!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
I, for one, had a terrific one in which I found several surprise inflos! After intense scrutiny (and encouraging mumbling) over the course of several days, I spotted this on one tip, and then also on the second tip of my two-tip Dazzler:
YEE-HAW! What an over-achiever! I was already impressed with Dazzler as a robust and attractive plumie, but the two-for-two inflos makes it a winner in my book.
Then I spotted the same tell-tale peaks on one of my California Sally's four tips--woo-hoo! I'm also watching a couple on some NOIDs and one oh-please-let-it-be tip on Penang Peach. This gets me up to possibly eleven total inflos, after two years of seeing nothing except the inflos on newly-acquired plants. So gratifying!
Then, this morning I found that this Desert Sunrise inflo:
had turned into this:
Oh, yeah, that's the stuff of my dreams! Wanna see it again up-close? You know you do!
Here it is:
(Hey, ebay sellers, don't steal this photo. Seriously, I will come after you.)
Hubba, hubba! And thick-petaled, too, though I didn't get a scent from it.
And just because they're so cheerful, here's a pic of my cattleyas that opened earlier than usual this year:
And finally, thanks to K's Jeannie cutting, a picture I call "Optimism":
Anyone who's owned a Jeannie Moragne for a while will understand. ;-)
