    Default Results of shopping spree...

    Yikes...I completely lost control! Not good for the balance of my bank account. But, what the heck...my justification (ie excuses) include the following:

    1. You only live once...
    2. It was FUN (also great procrastination from less expensive more productive things I should have been doing)
    3. Great therapy and cheaper than prozac

    Three separate orders from 3 venders all over the US : (was going to be two venders, but when I did the side by side order of the two I was trying to decide between, well, yeah, that didn't work so well....LOL )

    Blc. Keowee 'Newberry'
    Blc. Yuan Nan Mini (Bl. Richard Mueller x C. Chocolate Drop)
    Bl. Richard Mueller x Laelia aurea
    Potinara Hoku Gem 'Freckles' HCC/AOS
    Epicattleya (Catyclia) Kyoguchi 'Fumi'
    Bl. Yellow Bird (Bl. Richard Mueller x B. nodosa)
    Blc. Waianae Leopard 'Ching Hua' HCC/AOS
    Lc. Gold Digger 'Orchid Jungle'
    Slc. India Rose Sherwood 'Kiilani'
    Maxillaria tenuifolia
    Encyclia brassavolae
    Coelogyne fimbriata

    There will be NO further concern over space in my south window. Whew. Good thing I don't lose control quite this badly very often....I may have to get a second job!

    Off to find a glass of wine to celebrate.
    (Now if the weather will cooperate so they get here in good shape....)

    Jenny, I had a nice glass of wine tonight, but I'm into the scotch now... I'll certainly ching your glass of vino in congrats of your purchases! Nice job buying!

    There's so much therapy in wanting, buying, receiving, growing, and sharing the orchid journey! It's healing for all of us. And we all have our broken moments. I think we're all chinging our preferred beverage to your successful shopping Hoover action.

    Julie - ching-ching!

    I can understand what your are going through trying to fit plants in your windows. I just bought 22 and managed to squeeze them . I had to deleaf some African Violets to make room for them all. I bought Gold Digger too. My greenhouse is comming today so weather permitting they will have a new home in a week or two.
