In Bloom in the Wayward Garden
Cattleya warneri variety semi-alba in bloom and decorating the kitchen. The orchids are starting to bloom as they come out of their Winter torpor. Overall, a fun time of year. The nicest thing about Cattleyas is their wonderful perfume-like fragrances. Too bad they seldom carry these in the supermarket. However, if you must have one, most decent growers and nurseries have at least a few for sale.
