    Yew - keep posting away - it's not in the slightest boring - you've even made phals interesting to me. I love the photo of your granddaughter! And you're right, that driftwood bench is a beautiful piece of art.

    Your photos reminded me of my parents visiting back in June. I dragged them to the Botanical Gardens where they nearly expired from the heat and humidity. Anyway, the show collection at the Orchid Conservatory had dwindled down to walls of white and yellow phals - this is a photo Phillip caught of me, my mom, and my dad (very candid shot as you can see):

    Thanks Maura. Very nice picture of you, and your Mom and Dad.Love these type of candid shots - better than the posed ones, any time.

    I promise these are absolutely my last pictures of the 20 WOC.
    Please don't let it be the last of your WOC Photos!!!! If you have more please post them. Those of us who were unable to attend are enjoying seeing them, and your photography is excellent ( from some one who knows little about ISO etc. LOL)
    Thanks for sharing. Hope your shoulder injury is healed now.

    These pictures have been so wonderful! Ditto to Angela's plea for more. Those phals were jaw-dropping and had me agog.

    I also loved Maura's picture of her and her parents - too cute!

    My favorite picture is the one of your wife, sitting on that beautiful wooden chair. ( made out of a tree stump, no less! ) She looks beautiful, Yew. You are one lucky man...Betty

    People here getting tired of orchid pics? What an odd idea!

    Those phals are so impressive. Love that bench too!
