    HOW BEAUTIFUL !!!! It looks like it was dipped in wax. I assume by the name that it has a fragrance?

    How ever I am poor at describing fragrances.
    Which of the two do you like better?

    I think that I like the second one better more pink/purple color and it looks shinier.

    Very elegant pictures; I would be hard pressed to choose between them! Are they just mounted on a wire?

    Yes, they are practically bareroot.

    I am so glad that pretty soon they'll have better parking spaces.

    Have I missed something? Are you finally moving to that dream property you were describing sometime back? Exciting!

    Some plants may have to be moved in a month or two...My entire household, maybe in a few years time.

    The property has to be fenced initially with barbed wire probably, and thence it has to be cleared of undergrowth. All these while I meet with an architect so we can plan what to do with the five acres or so.

    My head is bursting with ideas.

    So the plants get to move in before you do, eh? It sounds like a huge project which will take loads of hard work--and which will make you the envy of all of us before long! I'm excited for you and hope you will keep us up to date as you flesh out your dream!

    Congratulations Nelson!!! Great to hear that your dream home in the mountains is coming to fruition!

    Re: the two aerides... I like the Palawan form better from afar, the yellow really makes a nice visual effect, however, up close the Calayan form with the bicolor seems to have a purity of character...

    As usual wonderful pictures!
