Pretty picture: Brassolaeliocattleya Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon'

I tried very hard to come up with something to say about this flower, but apparently all my blogging energy for the day went into a mashup post, which will go up twelve hours after this one did. It's not that it's not a nice flower, it's just that after a certain point, one gets tired of frilly Cattleya-type orchid flowers, even if they're sort of unusual-colored Cattleya-type orchid flowers, and I think I'm approaching that point so fast that the blurry spot in the rearview mirror might be it already. I hope someone is making new kinds of orchids.

You may be metamorphosing into a species nut, if the unusual trumps the pretty in your mind.

If so, welcome to the club.

I never get tired of seeing orchids that look like that.

There is nothing wrong with offering up a pretty pic with nothing more than an ID with it.

I have an orchid that sort of looks like that but it's *small* and it smells wonderful. Otherwise, I'm with you on the big, frilly ones. Maybe if the flower were really, really *blue*? :->

Seeing as how it was 3:00a.m. when you posted this, I'm not surprised that you couldn't find much to say. Looking forward to the mish-mash post.

I was actually writing it last night (8-10 PM?), and the 3 AM is Pacific Time because for some reason that's the time zone Google thinks I'm in. I schedule almost all of my posts to go up at either 3 AM or 3 PM Pacific Time, for complicated and boring historical reasons.
