    Guilty as charged too....

    I had a break from school today and guess what, I'm off to the nursery and came back with fern barks and sphagnum moss and a few bulbos...

    Besides that, I have already planned the next few bulbos that I am going to buy like the bulbo macranthum and bulbo refractalingue. Sigh....

    LOL. I got my box of 30 last week (mine are all minis, tho) and I swore SWORE! that I was done buying for the winter. And then I discovered a snip in the local newspaper about the annual orchid sale this weekend. Twohundred&fifty orchids. In bloom. How the heck can I not go? There is no way. If nothing else, I can join the orchid club, now that I know they still exist. . .and as a good little new member, I should buy just a few, right? only a few. . .

    Love it, Trish. I would love to have gotten minis because they would have been easier to blend in. If I were closer, I would tag along on the "going just to join the OS" trip. And yes, you must get just a FEW so that they know that you are a serious orchid person. Have fun at the sale!!

    Ah but see... she IS going shopping ... just spending her money on frivolous things (aka anything not an orchid). Besides just tell her you're trying to "lower your carbon footprint"

    Hey Trish, Where is the orchid show (in Iowa) this weekend? Not that I can go as I am helping host a budgerigar show, but if it's close enough... I COULD sneak out over lunch......

    I see the disease and treachery covers the world.

    Perhaps we can influence a few world leaders to collect orchids and sneak them into the big houses, instead of weapons. There might be more to go around

    You guys are hilarious! I am so very glad that I am not the only demented orchid nut in the world.
