This Spring I decided not to move my orchids and benches from the temporary greenhouse to the patio. Instead I took off the greenhouse cover and replaced it with a piece of shadecloth. I may have to prune a partially overhanging tree to allow more light into the shadehouse. We'll see how it goes.

Cattleya lueddemanniana

First Cattleya bloom of the spring. This is a first bloom of a seedling from a cross by Michael Sinn (Canaima Orchids) and recently acquired from Ben Oliveros (Orchid Eros).
