    Default Fess Up orchid addicts!

    Alright, time to come clean--at least to the other orchid addicts. In the last two week (meaning 14 days from whenever you read this) how many orchids have you purchased?

    I keep seeing all these fabulous lists of new acquisitions and I am curious how many others have succumbed to that almost uncontrollable urge to shop for orchids.

    We don't shop too much for orchids this time of year here because to walk through a nursery involves getting very wet one of two ways. 1) You get extremely rained on by a stray cloud that makes you go home and put your clothes in the dryer, or 2) The heat and humidity has you sweating before the car doors are locked and you take paper towels along to mop your neck and face so you don't look like a drowned rat! lol Otherwise...i'd be shopping!! This girl's got cabin fever bad!

    whew... I'm glad the past shopping spree happened more than 14 days ago ;-)

    having said that i spent almost 20% of my monthly income on that last shopping spree and as I type this, two flasks of Paphs are on my left, which I haven't got around to deflasking... now each one of those have at least 20 plants so I guess either way one looks at it, I'm a definite orchid addict

    Does it count if you won a compot in an orchid auction and a friend gave you 4 other compots because they ran out of room...? ...

    I voted 1-4
