    Default Lacking impulse control . . .

    So today at the orchid society meeting there was a table full of beautiful plants for sale from the speaker. As I browsed through--we'll let's just say I showed a SERIOUS lack of impulse control.

    Here is one of the new additions. It smells wonderful and has an unusual color for Rhy. Gigantea. Thanks for guarding this one for me Bruce--it might have "walked off" the table had you not been keeping an eye on it for me.

    No worries. It is a beauty and several of the society members came over to 'read' the tag.
    Congratulations!

    Cheers,

    I loooove that. I guess that's another one for the list. I won a plant at my society's meeting today that's in bloom. I couldn't get very good pictures of it today, so I'll try to take some more tomorrow and post them.
