    Thumbs up Our August 2012 OrchidTalk Member of the Month

    Happy August everyone! It is time to announce this month's winner in our Member of the Month honors club! It is with much joy that I announce the winner of OrchidTalk's Member of the Month for August 2012 is: Nataliwind (Natalia). Nat has been an active member here in our community since May of 2008. Her orchid growing skills (especially the wonderful Cattleya orchid blooms and healthy plants she posts on a regular basis) along with her kind and charming demeanor make her the perfect person to honor with this months award!

    Here are a few things the members had to say about Natalia:

    "Nat is as cheery on the OrchidTalk as she looks in her avatar."

    "...Her friendly and sunny nature"

    "She is helpful in giving information on OrchidTalk. When the storm passed through she offered to go down to help with the clean-up for those who had damage."

    "Natalie grows the most beautiful orchids and so willingly shares her knowledge. Her love of orchids and for the people in this forum is infectious. She really deserves this honor. She is always kind with her comments and is the type of person I would love to have as friend."


    "Nat is one of the friendliest members of OrchidTalk. Her photos and orchids are exquisite"

    Nat truly embodies our community mission of 'Bringing people together to grow orchids better'. Congratulations to you Nat!! I am so happy you are our August 2012 OrchidTalk member of the month!

    cheers,
    BD

    Congratulations! I always love seeing your cattleyas! And your perfect day sounds about perfect to me as well...A day fishing rounded off with a bottle of wine.
