    Default It's a MIRACLE or a CRIME!

    I don't know how this happened. I was away on business in Minnesota and when I returned today I found this on my door step! I need to check my account to make sure no fraud has taken place. I cannot believe someone would purchase these orchids behind my back. They purchased a Brassovola Nodosa and B. Nodosa Hybrid along with a Catt Warpaint. I will not rest until this criminal is brought to justice!

    Oh this is soooooo good! Note to Bill use this deceptive story the next time a shipment of orchids arrive when I am not home. Just remember look innocent and keep a straight face. Lol. Great buys by a knowledgeable scam artist.

    Thinking of putting the Brassavolas in slatted baskets, how are y'all potting them?

    Ha Ha Ha the prayers you asked for have not been answered in the way you asked. I am sure this has made you real happy. Hope you find the Devil who did this to your account.
    Ok, now get busy and pot them up.

    You know Angela, no harm no foul. I think I will let the scoundrel get away with it this time. I will pay closer attention to my checking account for suspicious activity going forward!

    That is really funny. I have re-potted my b. nodosa in a slatted basket and since then it has grown twice the size then before, I think they like it a lot
