Three blooms this year! I wish there were a show coming up that was near enough for me to be able to spare the time to go to. I also, for example, have a Bulbophyllum sulawesii with seven spikes on it (the first ones are just starting to open).

The flower is beautiful.
But my Gods, where do you live in Lynchburg?
I was at VPI during college.
the background looks like the flower is housed in a castle.

Yes, except that it's "he."
Ah, so the view is from a campus bldg.
There is another one of your posts, the photos show the background that make me miss the view of the distant mountain & valley from my apt building near the university in Blacksburg.:sob:

Hien – I was at VT last year; Sweet Briar this year. Both are lovely campuses (campi?). I've never made it up to VMI, but I know a guy there in the Philosophy Dept.

This complex has been a faithful bloomer, and really very consistent; no deformed blooms, not ever. I wish it had a name!
