    I can put a name to most if not all of the species, but that green flower with a white lip is a newbie to me - so insouciant ! Can anyone write a tag for that ? It might go on my wish list !

    Already thought of that, Naoki! I think we're going to be a caravan of SUVs! (Seriously, we're taking my '03 Ford Focus - best little old car in the world - to save gas, and, much as I am going to want to enjoy immediate ownership of the goodies, I'm going to have to have the nurseries hold them and ship them back just before we get hope. Sigh....

    That remind me of having been to an orchid nursery with my two other orchid hoarders by taking my MINI Cooper. I underestimated how many they had bought. It was only 45 min drive, but orchids were all over us. By the way, I only got THREE plants.
