    While I guess I admire your restraint, I know it would have been more than one boxful for me. I wouldn't have been able to pick just one. They are all beautiful.

    Thanks Connie for the pictures of the gorgeous blooms. You are a very strong woman to leave the place with just one plant.

    That would be an Encyclia Cordigera. They are just beautiful. I love the shape of the flower. It pained me not to bring one home. lol

    I am not strong...if I were strong I would not have brought the phal home. lol And I've been whining all day about the ones' I left at the nursery. One that isn't among these shown, was a lovely ascofinitia and another I want to go back for was a mule earred oncid with the alba form of the psycopsis flower. There was three spikes, three flowers and a fourth small spike just getting growing. I have a box with three plants on its way in the mail and I reminded myself over and over I didn't need any more work this week. There was a box full screaming my name, so I snapped a ton of pics and ran for the door with the phal. lol

    Oops, Bill meant to say 'Box them up and send them to Bruce'. Just wanted to make sure his message was understood.

    I don't know how you controlled yourself and only came home with a phal. WOW so beautiful.

    Cheers,
