Then I shall surely count my blessings, Geoff, for being able to enjoy this orchid the past two blooming seasons. I can't even begin to tell you how hot it has been here this summer. No rain either so I've been out first thing every morning watering. I do see in the forecast later this week some afternoon thunderstorms so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I'm sure your homeland is quite nice. Would love to visit the area one day.
