    Looks like you have good things happening!

    Orchids do teach us patience, don't they? (Or, for those of us who don't learn easily, they just keep us anxiously checking on them daily....I'm sure I'm not the only one here who has held a flashlight up to a sheath to see how those buds are coming, am I????? C'mon...I KNOW I can't be the only one? Really????)

    I plead guilty. I'm still doing that after nearly 50 years of growing orchids.

    Kathi, Yew didn't say it wouldn't happen, just don't look for it in the first 50 years!
