    Default Nursery Visit - The best of the bet

    I wanted to share some pics from a recent visit to a local nursery that carries a little bit of everything. These are not my plants, just very pretty pic's I thought you all might enjoy seeing. If I had a greenhouse like some of you many of these would be mine, but for now my little group of 50 have filled my porch and for now I have to be contented with my new cd of pictures. These are a few of the best. I don't know how to get all my pics on one post, so I'll do several to get them all in.

    I had so many more, but I'll leave you with these few. I had over 80 pics but can't figure out how to do a link to my Kodak album.....ah well. Hope you all enjoyed these few.

    Purdy posies, Connie!

    Unfortunately I'm unfamiliar with Kodak's album. Now had it been photobucket, I could have made myself useful.

    Wow those orchids are all beautiful. I wish I could afford to build a grow-house that big!

    Do you know if that epidendrum on the foreground in the first picture has a name?
    It looks very similar to a NOID (radicans?) that I have in bloom.

    I do not know the name of the Epidendrum, sorry. I just bought a red one myself that will forever be a NOID. I wish I could help you. If you'd like I can send you the phone number to the place. I have tried calling a couple times to see if that epi. was still there. They are super nice people and I'm sure if you tell them the picture was taken Saturday Morning, the red epi was on the middle table to the left as you come in the door to the area with the blooming plants, she will more than likely be glad to help out with a name. I will call a couple more times this afternoon and try to get the name, if I can't get through, then I'll send you a PM with the phone number.
