    You are being very kind. I took over 80 pictures and then whittled them down and did a little "zoom" to get close-ups. The flowers are beautiful...and very photogenic. I doubt it is as much talent as it is inherent beauty...but thank you.

    Nice, Connie!

    Particularly liked the catt (4th pic, 2nd post) and the lip on the phal (3rd pic, 6th post)

    Heavy drooling here! Beautiful orchids! Wish I had a place like that close by. Well perhaps not---the bank account would really be drained!

    Restraint?? lol Well, it has something to do with the prices. I'm a big cheapskate. For the most part, that is why I don't have alot of the fancier plants. The beautiful red slc. with the yellow lip was very tempting...as well as the yellow catt with lovely pinkish fringe. The plants weren't very large, however, their prices were. lol

    Thanks for the treat! I also loved being able to see all the orchids in the background in each picture.
