    This is funny!!! This reminds me of having been to an orchid nursery with two of my orchid hoarder friends with my MINI Cooper. We literally filled my car with approximately 50 plants. I only got 3 plants.

    What fun you two had and how nice to spree at one nursery after the other. I read Cathy's post here about you going up to her 'neck of the Florida woods' orchid shopping. Its as if much of the state is one big orchid shopping experience. Until a year and a half ago there were no commercial orchid growers in New Mexico. Now there is one in Santa Fe which is only 300 miles from here. So you see that now I can spree in Santa Fe then shop till I drop in Colorado, only another 300 miles................. AL

    These days, its like I am an expecting mother. Cravings. I want to see my newly potted orchids throw out massive roots and leaves. I want to see all of them in flower and if it would be up to me . . . would make phalenopsis aromatic ::sigh:: All my orchids are on the hand-rail up the hallway because of the windowsill being very cold in the nights. My beloved partner toppled a phal he gave me on my birthday and its 10 inch leaf span, crushed two of the new leaves. He was petty sad, bad conscience; I just told him not to worry as phals are shamelessly shameless and in no time it would throw out new waxy and enormous leaves that the other orchids would be envious and the paph. sanderianum(seedling) which is recovering in a bag(because of its underdeveloped roots) would be highly embarrassed. ::sigh:: Can't get enough of these orchids, so addicted and I agree, would love to talk bouts and bouts about orchids with a orchid fanatic.

    Thanks Connie for that nice guided tour !! You must have had a blast. Saw already the amazing orchids you got (still see the Phaius every day LOL). When I come to Florida, you have to also take me shopping (I will book us a big van, so that none of us has to hang by the car roof LOL)

    I don't have the opportunities here (and my life is in chaos now), so you don't know how much I enjoy the virtual shopping days with you ladies. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
