Show and Tell in Santa Rosa

Cattleya trianaei grows in Colombia and is the national flower. It is fragrant and needs bright light.

I have had this plant for several years and it has bloomed well every year. This is the first year I have taken a picture of the flower.

What has happened is that I see that it has bloomed when I am in the greenhouse. Then I go about my business and forget it. Then I notice it is past its prime and tell myself I will get the picture next year.

I am taking this plant for Show and Tell in Santa Rosa tonight. While I was dusting off the leaves, I finally took the picture. I think that I was letting the fact that this flower blooms when the weather outside is worst interfere.
