Today’s Orchid is a mouthful. It’s much easier to write the horticultural way, Blc. Success Dream x Lc. Orglade's Grand. This is actually a trigeneric hybrid with some other stuff sprinkled in. It reminded me most of a Cattleya type with the huge flowers and fresh fragrance. Cattleya orchids are some of my favorite and I am looking forward to growing some over the winter.

Sitting here doing some homework listening to the wind continue to pick up in intensity. Its really starting to blow and I will be happy to get this post up before the power or cable goes out.
