    Fritz Schomburg
    Just opened up today. This is the second blooming. Looks better than first blooming.

    Really a lovely flower with such vibrant color.
    Everybody's Fritz is blooming but mine! Mine
    is working on a nice, large new growth and I
    hope mine improves on the second blooming
    too.

    Very nice. Love the depth and texture of these beauties.
    Mine opened yesterday, too. Been thinking about moseying down to the backyard to look at it some more.

    I used a 4000 K LED shop light for the lighting. The color looks pretty close on the computer to what it looks like in front of me. It went from 9-cm wide yesterday to 10-cm today.

    Kate - That must be nice to mosey into backyard to look at your orchids in January!

    Nice form and color. Ours seem to be late this year; seems like the sun has taken a vacation somewhere south!

    Why yes, Ken, as a long-reformed Wisconsin girl, I must confess it is very nice. I posted a pic of my Fritz on David’s thread, along with a picture of it “in situ” (where it hangs in one of my orchid boxes).

    I hear that Tom! We've had much warmer temps
    than usual and nearly constant rain. Most of my
    Phrags are later than usual as well.

    Thanks Eric.

    Tom - thanks for the reminder that the grass is always greener on the other side. I used to have a greenhouse, but forgot how January only had a few sunny days in the midwest which reminds me of how the sun was always changing. Sometimes I would be late putting up spring/summer shade cloth and burn some leaves on a bright spring day.

    Eric, In a weak moment, months ago, I agreed to do a presentation for my orchid club on Phrags this coming Wednesday. I hope you don’t mind if I title one of my slides “Yay besseae hybrids!” Lol, Kate

    Yes, still looks good. The bloom got up to 11 cm after a few days but lost some flatness. The texture is still very fresh looking.
