    Default Den Compactum cross...

    I got a card with "orchid money" in it for my b'day and since I've been having "malfunctions" the last couple days, the hubby took me to one of my nurseries to get a plant (to give me something to fuss over). There were so many exotic types, but I fell in love with this dendrobium. I've had to sit and rest my arms the last few days, the doctor got a little too enthusiastic with his exam the other day and it aggravated the elbows. If I don't comment alot, I'm still lurking. I can't type alot right now. I'll be back to typing again shortly....
