    At the Xmas party with the Atlanta society the other night I went early and my friend Roy was standing there with this and said Merry Christmas. I freaked. What a beautiful gift. The blooms were beautiful and one of my favorites that I don't have in my Phal collection, so I was very grateful. Roy's been so good to me. He has a smaller greenhouse by commercial standards but for a residential he has a few thousand plants and has been growing about 30 years. He's given me that Kuntrarti Rurarti (sp) that I posted awhile back and a P. pulcherrima and a P. Hugo Freed X Armando Vasquez. Now this.

    Second Bloom, I like the pointed lateral sepals. Huh...well now that I look a little closer they both have the pointed sepals they're
    just recused on the one bloom and you can't see them.
