    Thanks betty, thats what I did, but lighting is not sufficient indoors so I have to adjust the
    exposure, unfortunately im shooting handheld which results to blurry images.... a tripod is in the future.

    Things that irk you...windows does an update and I can no longer figure out how to resize my pictures and my email isn't working right. Updates are code for "new ways to make your computer mess up!". Almost up there with the local store "moving" everything to different aisles....just when you figure out where everything is. (...i'm grumpy this week lol if it were the holidays i'd just go "bah humbug" and take my long winter nap!)

    yea ok, they are rafted, but not in flower. I have no idea when they will either, so, just a foliage pic for now. When and if the bulbo flowers, the largest thing on the plant will be its seed pod!

    oh connie, just to make a bad day worse, i have summer holidays in two weeks! 5 weeks without an annoying little brother!!!! he will be at school during the day thats why, he still has 5 more weeks after my exams.

    oh and the bad day worse part was actually supposed to be for you =) because you said you had a bad day and you wished it was summer. i really shouldnt boast though

    You don't like summer holidays? Here there are songs about school being out. Maybe these are good things... Well except the "exams" part. I'm guessing there is a ton of studying to be done.

    yes, there is too much to be done. its saturday now so....LESS THAN A WEEK! thats not good. but i love summer holidays, except for the heat. in NZ it gets sooo hot. upside is , in the early/mid evening, the warm humid air rises above the waikato/hauraki plains, and condenses into clouds-last summer, there was a supercell form above the plains, created by 7 different storms combining. hail, wind, rain, lightening, mini-twisters, you name it!

    When my first Catt. sheath fills up and starts to produce 3 wonderful blooms, then blasts them just short of opening up!!!!!

    When a new orchid person posts a picture of their first bloom one flower, and is so proud of it .
