    Cool Freaky Mini Dend?

    I just wanted to share some pics of my freaky mini dendrobium with you. (noid, I lost the tag unfortunately)

    It already bloomed on this pbulb ages ago....and its blooming on this pbulb again. Right next to where the old spike was.

    That's not normal, right?!? I think it is playing with my emotions.

    What do you think?

    Cute dend. They do bloom like that. I have some that do that and then throw out a keiki the same way too.

    Cheers,

    Haha, okay - I'm glad you guys have seen that before! It sure surprised me. Maybe its playing the "OMG I think I'm going to die so I better make flowers" game, but I hope not.

    That picture is from our trip to Paris and the S. of France last summer (not honeymoon, just for fun) - I'd never been to Paris before, and it was just as amazing as I'd hoped. . I'm so grateful we went when we did - we certainly wouldn't be able to afford the airfare this summer! Holey moley!!

    For our honeymoon, we went to St. John in the Virgin Islands. Actually, since people post pictures of their vacations, let me post some of mine! Here are some of Paris:

    1 - Me by Eiffel Tower (woo!!)
    2- Example of the gorgeous Parisian architecture
    3- Beach in Juan les Pines, S. of France (we stayed in this town)
    4- Monaco Harbor (all I can say is, whoa!!)

    Cool photos! The harbor shot is amazing. It looks so packed! It reminds me of a similar harbor in Malta - only this one has huge ships.

    Cheers,

    Monaco always made me think of Legoland, they are so limited by space!
    Very nice pictures of Paris, you look gorgeous in front of the Eiffel Tower.

    All they have to do is invade France to gain some more real estate. The only problem is that they have no military of their own and have a protection contract with France. So they have to somehow get France to invade itself?


    Regarding the hard cane dendrobiums, they do that all the time. I have an oldish dendrobium that has not produced a new cane or even a keiki in 2 years and just keeps blooming from the old canes.

    John, don't go starting a second revolution in my country!
    Maybe if Monaco teamed up with Andorra they could overtake a small French town or something. (Monaco doesn't have an army but they must have at least 6 or 7 guards guarding the pink palace) .
