11 years ago, I can remember if this was my Catt pic or not, I think it was but the colour is all washed out. The whole flower was a good, deep chartreuse. As it should be.

V. (Ascda) Dong Tarn 'Robert'

Oldie but I like it. Not my best flowering of the plant & something decided to nibble a bud.
The same spike, 1 pic in light, 1 in shade. Interesting contrast.

Angraecum leonis

I think this is my best flowering of this plant ever.
Didn't win anything major except the Best on Display at a recent show.
