    Default Hello all

    Been away for awhile. After my hual came in I decided to start redecorating my two year olds room. I built cabinets and painted a mural on the wall. It was a few day project that turned into a few weeks. My poor plants got repoted 1-2 at a time durung the process. I'm almost finish but I put to blooming plants in his room today. One of them just opened this morning. Hope all is well.

    Thumbs up Glad you're back!

    Hi Fx, I've been wondering where you were!

    Some of you will remember a thread a few weeks back where Fxman found a bargain Phal. Leopard Prince at his local big box store. I commented that it was a great buy and that Leopard Prince was a phal I admired. Well, guess what? Soon afterward I get a PM from him offering to go back to the store and score one for me too! He even talked the manager into discounting a still blooming plant to be sure it was tagged correctly. It arrived healthy and happy a couple of days later--and he wouldn't let me pay him! Just said to be sure to do something nice for someone else. (Don't get any ideas ya'll!)

    That's the kind of people we have around here!

    Lucky 2 yr old to grow up with orchids in his room! What did you do a mural of?

    Default Hello all

    Here's a picture of the mural before completion. It has since been 99% complete but no picture yet. I also added to the room a small saltwater fish tank. Which is a whole new hobby in itself. It is in the begining stage. Everything has to be added slowly as not to throw off the bio balance.
    My open plants are Dtps. Tzu Chiang Prince and a violacea x Beter. I have a Summer Beach just about to open and a Kelidoscope spiking. Thanks for all the kind words. There's also a picture of my spoiled prince.
    Take care,

    Oh man, lucky little prince you have there! Welcome back. The mural is looking GREAT! And you did such a nice thing for Mehera. Just when I get overworked or stressed about something, I log on here and someone has done something wonderful for someone they really don't know that well at all - - and the best part, they don't expect anything in return from their kindness. I appreciate all you folks do for the forum and especially for each other. Very cool, Fxman!

    Cheers!

    WOW Fxman, that is one gorgeous little boy. He is so loved and blessed to have a dad who decorates his room in such a special way. Be sure and post a picture of the completed mural.

    Fx, you have a handsome son, and a lucky boy to have such a talented Dad. Can't wait to see the finished mural, so far it is looking great. You also were so sweet to get Mehera to Phal. We can start our own "Pay it Forward."
