More orchid goodness to brighten my monday !
Norman Bay has used many times as a parent plant, I've seen pictures of the flower and its okay, but has definitely made its mark in orchid breeding!

Mt.Hood orchidglade, Im on the hunt for one of these without having to give up organs- soooooooo beautiful.

Now that was a who's who list in White Cattleyas! I may have found a Pearl Harbor, but still looking for Bob Betts "The Virgin". It's a shame Jones & Scully aren't still open!

I read in "Classic Cattleyas" by the Chadwicks that before cloning, Jones & Scully would buy many of their plants from individuals as they were awarded by the AOS and offer them on the "Imperial List" as divisions. The book mentioned that they would sell for as much as $50 a pseudobulb.
