    My dad used to say that to me once in a while, usually he said "Do great things" when I was on my way out.

    LOL. if it makes you feel better, Joe, your grasp exceeds mine. Was taught German in high school but when I went to college took Russian instead. Then stopped that as I didn't have the time to dedicate to learning it. Now every once in awhile a phrase pops into my head or I hear/see something that I almost understand. (Though I did follow most of your post.) I do wish my mother had spoken slavic when I was a kid. Would have been nice to grow up bilingual.

    That red passion flower is fantastic! I think it is probably one of the nicest ones I've ever seen. You captured its color beautifully, Ron!

    The orange flowers in the very 1st pic ... I know I've seen them before but can't remember what they are.

    The white orchid -- 2nd post, 1st pic -- looks like Degarmoara Winter Wonderland

    Spotted flower -- 2nd post, 4th pic -- is some sort of Alstroemeria

    The oriental lily -- 3rd post 1st pic -- appears to be a Stargazer lily

    nice dahlias -- 4th post, 1st pic

    3rd post 1st pic appears to be Epidendrum radicans, and the 4th pic in that post is some sort of hydrangea

    Can't help with the specific names for other orchids

    Nice pics!

    Hi,
    Thank you for the beginning of the advice given to post pictures.
    Regarding your pictures I want to say that they see some flowers for the first time and others grow in Romania, even I have something.
    We do not know what beauties of flowers there in the world. Photos posted on the forum you can see and admire
