    I could swear that last lot were flowers on some large bunching tropical plant! Amazing what orchids can do to survive....and amazing they have remaind untouched for millions of years. Dad says:

    "If an idea works well, why would the powers that be want to alter said idea? An orchids survival mechanisms work like clockwork, so why would Mother Nature change them?"
