    They are very nice! Like those sunset colors a lot! As far as drinking and orchid shopping goes...the good folks that run the Pacific Orchid Expo in San Francisco know how to make me happy! A bar at an orchid show. Keeps my partner from complaining about the fact that I go to every vendors booth AT LEAST once before I buy anything and it loosens my grip on the wallet so I bring more home! Makes my bank account sad though.

    unfortunately our flower market doesnt have a bar... now that i think of it that could have money making potential... but i do carry a big thermal mug and 7-11s are located every 5-10 feet here ( you really can almost always see the next one from the doors of the one you are in) and they are kind enough to carry short flask bottles of jim beam and plenty of coke zero in case i need a top up...

    Very health conscience, Coke Zero, you should be sternly spoken to about destroying perfectly good Jim Beam by using it.

    I think it would pay for any of us to take Shane out, buy all the drinks, and just reap the benefits from the alcoholic bargaining.

    Gotta find that bar...

    didnt want to start a new thread but wanted to share an update on these sunset beauties... in a bit of promising proof that i have done well by my vandas, these two have been extremely prolific bloomers... this is the third showing since my first post... other than my phals that i just ignore like redheaded stepchildren... these puppies have been the easiest bloomers of all my chids! see, just goes to show, persistence pays off! and thanks to everyone who gave me sound advice on my merry path to vandaholism (something i think i caught from AL)
