    Thumbs up

    Too hard to choose! Can't resist the 'carved-in-wax' elegance of the Greenwich, and that Schomburkia is wonderful. Your orchids seem to be enjoying the California heat wave.

    Hi Jason,
    Thanks for your glowing comments! I appreciate that!

    Hi Bruce,
    Certainly, thanks!

    Hi Hcubed,
    Glad that you like my floof show!

    Hi Lynda (aka Mehera),
    Thanks so much! It was hard for me to pick a favorite as well. Actually where my orchids are, the heat wave was not that bad! High temperatures were only in the upper 70s! In the GH, temperatures could rise to around mid 80s but with misting, fans running full speed, we were able to keep the temps to around 82-84F at the hottest points of the GH (where most of the vandas and other warmth-loving orchids perch). Other spots of the GH, temps were in the high 70s! Most of my orchids seem to enjoy a bit of warmth now and then!

    Hi Diane!
    Thanks! Are you thinking about going to the Santa Barbara Orchid Fair this weekend?

    Cheers. Hoa.

    What a nice collection of bloomers you have there. I think the 'ontario' one looks like the 'merry song' catt i've been drooling over for a couple months.

    SB this weekend??? Whoa...wait - I think I have a birthday coming up!

    Actually, I've been thinking a lot about my southern CA friends lately, as I scramble to water and not kill all the critters I have (I haven't been home much and there's criminal orchid neglect going on here...)

    Just wanted to shout a quick hi to the Doc of Supreme Flooiferiousnous, and his trusty sidekick, Thumb! I still smile over all sorts of memories from my trip west!

    Things are busy here and I can't really spend forum time, when I should be spending watering time (and I'm not even getting that done), which is why I've been AWOL. But I miss you guys!

    Hoa, can you hire me to work in your greenhouse?! These are gorgeous!

    You're all making my wish list impossibly long with all these photos! I really want at least one of the pale green catts in my collection.. That and one of those gorgeous dark red striped paphs... Like St Swithin...

    Hoa, you are an aweful influence on us! I thought I'd found my next orchid when I saw your aerides rosea, but then you go on and show us more gorgeous floofies! What's a poor addict to do?? (note: emphasis on the 'poor' part)
    Well, just keep on posting and we'll keep on shamelessly lusting.
