    Default Birthday Orchids

    My birthday is today, but I decided to celebrate yesterday by doing a little road trip to the Portland, OR area and visit an orchid nursery there and do a little shopping.

    This is the main reason I went-aren't they just so awesome:







    They also specialize in complex Paphs and they are now coming into bloom.

    Oh Heaven! I love them all! Happy Birthday!! I guess you have your birthday hidden here on the forum since it did not have your name posted on the birthday list. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Looks like you made it an unforgettable one!!

    Cheers,

    Okay, that's a cool nursery! You chose well...i like the little "eye-like" feature. I'd have had to snag that pretty little yellow one myself.

    Thumbs up

    Do you happen to know the name of the Masdies? They are so beautiful, as are all the pics.

    I'm just starting, to try my hand at Masdies. So far, so good, I haven't killed one in the 4 months I have been playing with them. Summer may tell another story. I tried one about 4 years ago , Machu Picchu, and it didn't like my warm conditions. I'm trying another Machu Picchu. I'm trying these in a cooler location. For the summer they will go into the basement.

    OOPS I was so lost in the pic's that I forgot to wish you a Happy Birthday.
