Cattleya In Bloom


It's been a while since I last had my cattleya bloom. And I was so delighted to see one blooming again. I have it beautifully hanging outside my window for 2 weeks now. There are 2 buds coming so I knew I'll be enjoying them for few more weeks. Lovely lady in ruffled dress, isn't she?

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.  
They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
