    Oh Bruce . . .

    I know where you live and might be willing to come steal that one!

    WOW! Yeah, what can I say--that is spectacular! How many spikes are there? It is hard to tell from the photo! Yeah--wow--I'm speachless (which for those who know me is actually saying something . . . .)



    Hmmm--If I got in the car now, I could drive down their, break in at nightfall and be back before 10p.m.

    And as for Sadie.....Glad I have four large dogs. The Great Dane would probably step on your foot before you got fully in the yard! LOL. hehehehe... It is like having a horse protect the greenhouse.

    Do you really have four dogs? Your own, not counting the neighbors'?

    Sure. One really large, black Great Dane, two black and tan hounds, and one caramel hound. It takes about 40 lbs of dog-food each week to feed them all, but they bring us lots of joy and nobody comes into our yard unannounced or uninvited. The Dane of course is Ceasar and he thinks he rules the place. He has knocked me on my behind more than a few times. He gets very excited when we wrestle. He stands up on his back legs and puts his front feet on my head and shoulders to push me down. LOL. Sometimes he will 'lock' me in the greenhouse by sitting down in front of the door and leaning on it. He is such a character. The hounds all have such beautiful voices. The older female, Sadie, loves to talk to me. I can walk out side and she will start telling me something and I will make the noise back at her and it just escalates. They are really a lot of fun.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Sounds like a happy crowd. Ok, Sadie, tell you what. Let's do it together. You distract the dogs, I'll raid the greenhouse and we can split the take. Are you in?

    BTW, Bruce, your angraecum is a beautiful thing to behold......what spotty leaves?

    Hey, Bruce. Dogs are great. We have two shelties and a border collie. Joe
