Hi Kim!!! I am trying to get back on here. Just stay so busy. My kids are on Facebook so I am on there visiting with them. I posted these pictures on FB and thought I need to put on here too. How are you doing? Thought I would make it to Ritas with the group but couldn't make it work. I would love to see everyone.

I didn't make it to Ritas either, would like to get back to seeing our group of gardening friends. You must have enjoyed the mild winter, thus so many blooms on the Orchid cactus?

The bugs are awful though. Most of the Brugs have Broad Mites. I am on my second round of Avid spray. If this don't fix them I am about ready to torch about 30 Brugs. LOL

Picabo:: Beautiful blooms! Do you possibly have the names so we can study them better? bob

The first on the left I think is Cream de Menthe ( I have another plant blooming next week and will know for sure)
I had some bad labels a few years ago and let them get mixed up. I think they are both Cream de Menthe I know the second one is. It is a large 6 year old plant and has set its first buds. The blooms on this plant are about 12" across.

The second and third are unknown I have had them for at least 20 years bought them as cuttings from the Estate sale of a woman who worked at Cheekwood Gardens here in Nashville. The blooms are about 8" across

The third is Marseillaise A great bloomer, the color is not to be believed. stripes of Orange, dark pink and fuchsia with a lime center.

Last is a Ric rac . This has been a GREAT bloomer until last year when I let them get sunburned. I only got this one bloom on about 5 plants this year. I usually get dozens of blooms.

Any idea on the ID for the pink?
Here is a picture of one of the Ric racs on a better year
