    You know, I'm not a huge floof fan personally BUT after going back and reading all 40+ pages of this fantastic post, I think my restistance is crumbling. Fast.

    You have some fabulous flowers there and I would love to just move into your greenhouse!!!

    Hi Tim,
    Well, that C. harrisoniana surprised me too with its big and full flowers!
    Our other friends, I guess they have other pressing needs (like trying to earn a living or something like that ...) hehehheee

    Hi Bruce,
    Thanks! A pleasure to post pictures here!!! Glad that you enjoy them ...

    Hi Hcubed
    Thanks! (BTW, what is your name, can you tell me again?)
    Sure you can move in the GH anytime, but I have to warn you in advance, there is no place to sleep unless you want to sleep between the plants and it might give you a rash with all the humidity and moss growing everywhere ... hehheheeee ...You will be itchy all over ... Hehehheeee ...

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Ah Hoa, you just keep on tantalising us with your terrific treats (sorry about the alliteration)

    ... and there was I being happy with the solitary bloom that my Blc Oasis de Valec has gifted me with recently! But I know that I can't possibly have more orchids really, so it's great to share yours virtually!

    Thanks again.

    Hi Maria,
    Thanks!!! Glad that you enjoyed it!

    Hi Kerry,
    Thanks! I appreciate much for your thought and the alliteration, heheheee ... I have to say that the brits have a thing for words. I learned of a new word there ...
    For each posting, I was trying to play with the color as well as the arrangement to maximize the effect. Clearly, the last palette was much better, combining the blue (violet) with the yellow, the effect was amazing, very soothing to the eyes. The purple palette (the second) was only so so, too dark. The third palette, if I could move the semi-alba ...

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Hi all,
    I have not posted anything in this signature thread of mine for so long. Lot of things happened in the meantime ... This song by Lara Fabian speaks for my feelings so well ...


    (or )

    But it is spring. How can it be spring without an orchid show? So enjoy the picture parade courtesy of Chez Hoa Tony!!!
