    Default More rescued Orchids

    Okay, so I got home today after a long day at work dealing with difficult clients and sat down in front of my computer to check the new postings and hopefully to see beautiful photos. Not even half an our after sitting in front of my computer I just felt this weird feeling and sudden itch to go to the grocery store. And guess what was waiting for me....yes these 3 little guys. There were isolated from all those plants and other chids with pretty decorated pots because their blooms have already wilted. First thing I looked at was the price, and the sticker says $1.50, yes $1.50 each. I'm sure you guys know what happened next, yes they all followed me home.

    I don't have much luck with Phals, but maybe with some TLC they'll be nice to me.

    Oh, they are all Noid. One of them came with a tag that says M-T 1216 Mini Pink 07-18-2007. 07-18 my birthdate.

    The red one might be a Colmonara Massai Red. I have one very similar to it. Very easy to please plant and has really taken off in S/H.

    Wonderful job saving those guys. $1.50... that's awesome; over here I feel like I'm stealing if I get an out of bloom rescue for less than $10. They rather chuck them I think. Crazy people.

    Nice orchids! I ordered some online a couple weeks ago and am still waiting for them to arrive.
    I had the pleasure of working for 34 hours straight from Tues-Wed (yes, I am a tax preparer). It's easy for me to hide from difficult clients, but it's a different story trying to hide from a difficult boss!
    I'm off to the orchid show at the Huntington Library on Saturday. I'm so excited!
