This is the best flower it has ever produced...but it is still not what I had expected. The flower is skinny... all segments are quite small compared to the normal color form. I was seriously thinking about getting rid of it when I had to move things back inside this past fall...well, maybe I will keep it for another year. ***previous blooms were a lot worse than this.
I've told GuRu I would post mine...here it is:

I knew that..., but some members may not know its "fragrance".
If you remember, I was going to put this one on "the ugly thread"...For some reason, the color of the lip is very good this year besides better form. If GuRu keeps his, I am going to keep mine😂 Flower size is still small but bigger than previous ones.

Of course I'll keep mine ... even if there was only one reason to do so ... solely to tease Jens (Guldal) :D
 
Love that deep orange on the lip! Still deciding whether I want to give up some space for one…

The intensity of color in the lip is unusual to me. But I understand when you have to make choices.
