Pretty picture: NOID Cattleya Alliance

Another orchid picture that wasn't taken at the orchid show in March; this was for sale at the ex-job. (That happened to be in March also.)

I don't know if they didn't have it identified or if I just didn't bother to get the ID, but I like it. It's not that it's a cattleya type, though I do like those, and it's not that it's pink, though that doesn't hurt it either. I think the main thing it's got going for it, as far as I'm concerned, is that it's not ruffly. Ruffles are a turn-off.

Pretty much. I make an exception for flamenco dancers and the occasional pirate, but otherwise, yeah.

Ruffles can be cool:
