    I knew YOU would say that! Don't give me any ideas! I have a lot of big plants under the deck that fill up those benches and hanging space when I bring them in for the winter! That is the problem with taking plants out for the summer--you think that you have lots of room for more...

    Tell me about it! I don't take them out; I move them to a place of prominence inside when they bloom. Then I buy several more, to fill the empty spot. Then, when they shoot their booms I'm left thinking, "where the hell will this one go now?"

    It keeps life a floriferous adventure! There are worse addictions! And I love a challenge!

    I do agree with McJulie!
    Your growing area looks so neat and "empty"! Hehehe!!! Certainly there are more room for more orchids, I am afraid!

    Cheers. Doc Spock.

    That's "orchid cactus" that somebody gave me a couple of years ago. It thrives on neglect and flowers all the time.

    The white flowers are Rhyncholaelia digbyana, but the flowers are just about to be done.
