ellen, the lip is a deeper red purple color than in the photo. My camera has a hard time with reds! Especially inside the greenhouse.
Before posting the photo I checked the award in the AQ Plus to see how much was the HCC and it was a 78 point HCC. The lip in both of the flowers in the photo is all twisted, not nice and round as in mine. I think that the awarded plant was a day or two from opening completely.

How come you call this var Carol? Is it a clone 'Carol'?

yes, Pook, that is the only awarded clone of this cross. I wrote it as var Carol because the forum does not let me write it as it should be : Lc Melody Fair 'Carol' HCC/AOS.

This is white/ colored lip cattleya time. There are 3 different crosses in bloom here now.

Irma -

I really think that this blooming is better than the original award. You ought to have this judged.

If I don't go to Miami in December ( or send it ) to the AOS judging ( which was today Cry ) I will never be able to have it judged to raise the points. It always blooms at this time.
