    Yeah, like we all need more plants but they keep making more irresistable crosses....what's an orchidholic to do??? There should be a good country song that talks about Orchid Fever...lol "...I was drivin' my truck....load of orchids...my woman left me, my dog ran away, but my orchids will live to bloom another day. An I needed another orchid like I needed another hole in my headdddddd......"

    If they are all so beautiful as this one, then it is no wonder that you could not resist them. Very nice Paul!
