    Default Flea Market Orchids

    Well today is Saturday. Off to my favorite orchid vendor. This time I did bring my camera. I will post what I picked out in a couple of other posts. I told the vendor that I wouldn't be seeing him for awhile. I just don't have any more room, for more plants right now. I did pick up 5 plants. One is a bulb that needed to be repotted, so I divided this plant. I wish I had room for that the Nun Orchid ! It was impressive for $20.00. Enjoy, Rich

    Oh Rich, I am so glad spring is happening here. After seeing all of these beautiful, colorful orchid blooms, I am in need of a flower fix of my own! Wow! Love the Phaius too!

    Cheers,

    So much color Rich! I can see where you would have trouble limiting yourself. That Phaius is beautiful!

    Rich you have to get that Phaius !! It is so beautiful and are all other orchids too. It looks like a hybrid between Phaius schlechteri and tankerville.

    Wow, plant envy! I wish I had a flea market that sold such beautiful plants for such a low price. But maybe it's best. My daughter told me she was going to write a children's book saying "Where's grandma?" Can't find her for the plants both inside and out. lol!
