    Default Orchid Buying Streak!

    So, even though I just shelled out $225 for a Phal gigantea a couple of weeks ago, this morning I decided that I should get another Odontoglossum wyattianum. You know, for insurance, in case anything happens to the one I have . Well, needless to say, since I was already on the site and ordering, why not save on shipping and get that Bulbophyllum echinolabium and Maxillaria picta that I've always wanted. Oh well, another $150 gone to the orchid addiction!

    ok, not really that shocked... we've all seen those days when we 'needed' to get that one particular orchid we had to have now... and of course it is just logical to save money when making purchases, so why not bulk buy

    You know it's late in the summer! Have to get all your orchid ordering done before cold weather sets in .

    Bite your tongue ....I don't want to hear the word winter. If we stay in our current weather pattern we are going to be in trouble this winter. We have had the rainiest June in history and so far the 2nd rainiest July...It is a deluge here this morning...could hardly see as I drove into work this morning....if it continues we may break the July record.

    Same thing down here in the city Ron and it's raining again today. I'm fearing a very snowy winter.
