    Queen Adelia is regal. You provided her with a nice foil with the pale phals in the back. I also admire the mounted phal, as Amey said. It's doing so well.

    Hi Howard,
    Thanks! ME entering an orchid show!? Doc, I've never even BEEN to one, much less ENTERED. The closest one is about 50 miles away. Thanks, but as for entering, I would feel much more comfortable doing so when I know what I'm doing lots better.

    Yes, my greenhouse is a SunGlo, same as yours. Mine is about 10x17 (give or take a few inches), but it didn't come with any extras other than an exaust fan. I know yours came with several because I try to read many of your posts, if poss. A carpenter friend built my benches and the floor. My husband and another friend did the plumbing. Rodney (hubby) and one of his customers/friend did the wiring. Actually, Rodney had already done most of it because we built the gh over the base of an old satellite dish mount that he wired from our house.....you know.....one of those monster 10' dishes from ancient times. lol). By the way, I envy your pretty blooming orchids.....what pretty displays you've had. In fact, you may remember that I told you awhile back that I liked one so well that I made it my desktop image. I started growing orchids about 2 yrs. ago (I believe May of last year) At the time, I grew them in a room off of our garage (about 10x10) We bought my gh last Spring but it wasn't even partially 'operational' until last summer...not even any shadecloth yet...so that's when I moved my chids in (procrastination is one of my husband's most prominent characteristics lol.)

    Thanks again.....I enjoy hearing from you,
    Vicki

    See Vicki what you have to look forward to as you get "older"! I had forgotten we conversed about greenhouses back when... the mind just can't keep up as it used to.

    Thank you Amey....you've very kind! I have soooo much to learn, but I'm really enjoying my new orchid hobby. I never thought there would be anything that I enjoyed as much as my music, but I believe it and orchids run a close race.
    Thanks again,
    Vicki

    Howard, I can very much relate to what you say about 'memory' and 'getting older'! Look forward to?!....I'm 'there' and have been 'there' for quite a while. I was 60 last Oct., and I honestly think my memory is getting worse by the week....maybe by the day....geez, probably even as we speak. I get so mad at myself sometimes because such simple things slip my mind and I forget 'what', 'why' and 'where' a lot. Some things come back around, but I'm sure some are lost forever somewhere in my head. Anyway, don't worry about it....next time it may well be me.
